Les Bouffons is a sword dance to a galliard tune, that has a choreography suitable for performing in a masque or other display piece. Each dancer will need a lighweight sword (foil / rapier / schlager etc) with appropriately blunted tip, and a small shield or buckler.

If performing this, watch out for small spaces (you need safety-space between the dancers and the audience) and also for the height of the ceiling (Including any rafters or flourescent light tubes...)
