The Galliard or Galliarde (French) was originally known as 'Cing-pas' (five steps - describes the basic steps) in France as well as the Gagliarde or gagliarda in Italy. The earliest writings of the gagliarda were in 1480 by Bojardo (1441-1494) in Lombardy (N. Italy) which was probably the original name. The Galliard's name was changed to the "Romanesca" which was supposedly created by dance master R. Omanesca in 1588 in the Roman Campagna, it became part of the lively Hautes dances. The Galliard or Romanesque dance (romantic) was popular from the 1500's to 1650.
