These dances came from the Nurnberg manuscript [also called by 
another name--begins with C-- I'm not where I can look it up]. It is a 
collection of Italian dances written in German.  As Thea, who taught the 
class, pointed out, it is not clear whether these should be regarded as 
German varients or Bolognese variants, since that's where the author 
learned these dances.

There is no period source for specifically German choreographies, but 
there are written references to German style dances (all those things 
called "Tedescha", "Alemane", etc.), whatever that may mean.  There is 
also a lot of dance music by German composers, which resembles dance music 
elsewhere in Europe (galliards, etc.)
