The rigaudon (also spelled rigadon, rigadoon) is a French baroque dance with a
lively duple metre. The music is similar to that of a bourrée, but the rigaudon is
rhythmically simpler with regular phrases (eight measure phrases are most common). Also spelled Rigadoon, it is a sprightly 17th-century French folk dance for couples.
Traditionally, the folkdance was associated with the provinces of Vavarais,
Languedoc, Dauphiné, and Provence in southern France, and it became popular as a court dance during the reign of Louis XIV (Little 2001). Its hopping steps were
adopted by the skillful dancers of the French and English courts, where it remained
fashionable through the 18th century. Conjecture[weasel words] assigns its origins to Provençal sailors and its name to a Marseille dance master, Rigaud, who reputedly introduced the dance to Parisian society in 1630.資料來源： wiki
