This is a modern SCA choreographed dance. I believe it is done to a 
piece of music from the soundtrack of a movie called "The Wives of King 
Henry VIII".

We call it the "man-shaft" pavan, or the up-yours pavan, because of the 
hand gestures.

Why don't you get them to substitute "Queen's Alman"? that would be 
even more appropriate, and period.
