We usually use the words Renaissance Dance to describe dance done in the SCA, rather than Medieval Dance. This is because we don't know very much about Medieval Dance at all. Although dance as an art form was well known in the middle ages, the first recorded dance instructions and choreography date from the middle of the 15th century.
There are many pictures depicting dancing in earlier times, but without any choreography or more than a vague idea of how these dances went, it is impossible to recreate them.
