Random information on the term “Courtly dance”:
An allemande (allemanda, almain(e), or alman(d), French: “German (dance)”) is a renaissance and baroque dance, and one of the most popular instrumental dance styles in baroque music, with notable examples by Couperin, Purcell, Bach and Handel. It is often the first movement of a baroque suite of dances, paired with a subsequent courante, though it is sometimes preceded by an introduction or prelude.
A quite different, later, Allemande, named as such in the time of Mozart and Beethoven, still survives in Germany and Switzerland and is a lively triple-time social dance related to the waltz and the ländler.
The allemande originated in the 16th century as a duple metre dance of moderate tempo, already considered very old, with a characteristic “double-knocking” upbeat of one or occasionally three sixteenth notes. It appears to have derived from a German dance but no identifiable dance and no German dance instructions from this era survive.
