Arbeau wrote probably one of the most important dance treatises of the 16th century, Orchesographie, first published in 1587.

Orchesographie contains music and instructions for many of the bransles, pavans, galliards, and other dances commonly done in the SCA. Arbeau's dances were easily accessible to the masses both in his own time and today, as opposed to the more courtly dances of the Italian dance masters.

Thoinot Arbeau was an anagram for Arbeau's real name.
