The branle Double is found in Orchesography by Thoinot Arbeau. It is one of the quatre branles.

Steps Used


As with all branles, this dance is performed in a line of people holding hands or, if enough people are present, a circle. It is not necessary for the dancers to be paired into partners.

This is the easiest dance in the world.


DL DR Repeat, always doing smaller steps to R than to L


In place of the last two steps of the double right, three quick kicks can be inserted. This is a divided movement.
