>I dare you to try to sing the lyrics to Attaignant's tourdion while dancing without running out of breath.

I dare you to talk while dancing a five minute galliard and not get
short of breath.  By the way that's the real workout, sing out loud
while doing the dance, similarly with running.  It will drive you into
the ground, but once you get able to do it, and with persistence you
will, you'll be in the best cardio shape of your life.  (That's the
military way to increase endurance, go for a 20 minute run and sing
and shout the entire way through it)

Aside from workout tips from a Marine, I agree tourdion is fast enough
that I would recommend different people sing and dance, but I
personally really like it.
