To add to what master Mike said... 
It is a more structured couples form of dance. In some form it is seen in many late period movies. 
Here are some web links for your explorations... (not the best but what I could find on the fly)

Video clips of simple foot work by the library of congress
Examples of Masque Costume in the late 16th & Early 17th Centuriee http://www.elizabethancostume.net/masque/index.html(This site also shows period c. 1589 research for fae wings in period on costume)

Estienne's Country Dance (also has videos)

Usually it includes period dances of the sort done in court, and also
by the non-noble, non-titled, non-armigerous folks. Think pavane, 
bransle, gailliard, and so on.
