The double left, as done in the [[Haut Barrois Branle|branle du Haut Barrois]], is the same as an ordinary [[double left (branle)|branle double left]], except that it is done with running steps, springing off the floor between each step and the next: spring to left onto the left foot, spring onto the right foot approaching where the left foot was, spring to left onto the left foot, and then spring onto both feet joined.

Instead of joining the feet, one may land

Instead of joining the feet at the end, one may hop
  
 
Other versions of this step have been proposed. In one version, there is a full hop between each step and the next, but this is not supported by Arbeau's own definition of [[saut]], which emphasizes elevation (at the middle of the saut) rather than rising from the ground or landing. In another version, one lands on both feet for each step, but this is not consistent with the original French, in which every step except the final [[pieds joints]] is done by a foot in the singular.
