If you're looking for Medieval Dance then you're probably really in need of the article about Renaissance dance.

We don't know a whole lot about how dance was done in the Middle Ages, and there are no surviving examples of a Medieval Dance choreography. Some of the dance styles we know existed in the Middle Ages include the ronde, estampie, saltarello, piva and ductia, but apart from knowing a few of the steps we don't know how these dances were done.

Some Medieval Dance Music survives to this day, and much of it has been catalogued by Timothy McGee in his book Medieval Instrumental Dances.
