Pavane: The pavane is a courtly, formal dance from the Italian Renaissance, that survives today in the hesitation step used in weddings and various metaphorical and fantasy references.
And now they were milling backwards and forwards in a ghastly pavane.
A Book for Today: Unseen Academicals by Terry Pratchett
From the wings I heard and watched the pavane of tragedy move steadily towards its climax.

A strange tune began, a slow pavane that seemed to come from inside his own head. The beat grew more insistent, the dance that would end only when he, along with Melody and Sofia, were at the center of the maze.
