Del (D.Elson): One of the better in-print general dance manuals for
SCA dance. This does not attempt to exclusively cover period dance, however.
A number of the dances included are SCA inventions, and the book focusses
heavily on English Country, contains very few Italian rennaissance dances,
and omits completely any study of the 15th C Basse Danse from Burgundy
or Italy. Justin du Coeur: There are two tapes accompanying the book, which
contain danceable (if not always lovely) recordings of all of the dances
contained therein. Also, while the book does contain some non-period dances,
it is pretty honest about them: there is a "Dances that aren't period"
section at the end for the SCA dancs that really have no connection to
period, and it often (although not always) acknowledges the dances that
are a bit borderline. In general, it accomplishes what it set out to do:
document SCA dances. I wouldn't recommend it to the researcher, but it's
an excellent place to start if you're just interested in learning some
period dances as generally done today in the SCA.

Justin du Coeur: This is a very light overview of a number of dance
forms predating modern ballet. It is fairly slim (140 pages), and heavy
on pictures and music, so it only spends a few pages on each form. Roughly
half the book is arguably related to the Renaissance -- out of 13 chapters,
it has sections on the pavan, galliard, allemande, courante, sarabande,
gigue, and gavotte. It's not much use for serious research, but might be
useful for quickly showing some of the major dance forms of the period.
(The rest of the book is all Baroque forms.) The book was intended as a
textbook, and is very easy reading.
