The Spanish danza was a grave and stately court dance. Those of the seventeenth century were called the Turdion, Pabana, Madama Orleans, Piedelgiba'o, El Rey Don Alonzo, and El Caballero. Most of the names are taken from the ballad-music to which they were danced.
The light dances were called Baylë (q.v.).
(Pyrrhic). (See Pyrrhic).
