“Branle” and “Balli in tondo” (“Branle” and “Dances in circle”)

The “branle”, from the french “brandler”, which means “to oscillate, to swing”, had been already danced at the beginning of the fifteenth century. These are “chain dances”, which show virtuous swings of the dancers from one side to the other one.
