The most common form of dancing in the middle ages was the carol. It is known by any number of other names such as: carole, carola, rondel, rondelet and reigen. Dancers held hands and danced in a circle around a central point such as a maypole. Dancers provided the music themselves. Sometimes men and women danced together, but in many medieval illustrations, men and women often have their own circles. Instruments used while dancing included various kinds of drums and lutes.
