The suite of mixed branles, is a suite of five dances from Orchesography. These dances were not presented as a suite in the source, but are sometimes done as a suite to take the place of suites referred to in Orchesography where some of the tunes and choreographies are not given. In Lochac the are sometime referred to as The Cut Branles. The suite does not require the dancers to be paired off, and so may be danced with any number of people.
