Elizabeth I of England loved to dance. She took after he father Henry VIII in that respect. She loved the music and pageantry of her court, and no doubt her court was a lively place. There were three main dances that were very popular in the Tudor Renaissance Era.
The first two, were the Pavanne and the Galliard. The Pavanne was very slow and graceful. Elders and those with great dignity and poise loved this dance. The Galliard was a slightly faster dance that was popular among the younger people.
The Volta was a seductive and passionate dance. It was the naughty dance of the era, kind of erotic when the partners were in love. Like this example between Elizabeth I and her lover Robert Dudley, in the movie Elizabeth.
