The Bassa Danza is one of the two major styles of 15th Century Italian Dance, the other being the ballo. Its name literally means low dance and indicates that it does not include large leaps.

Music

There are only three pieces of bassa danza music that survive from the 15th century dance texts. The music is in 6/8, and it seems that the music was freely interchangeable, provided that the number of bars in the music matched the dance.
