Arbeau does have Capriol say that "this dance is too solemn and slow to
dance alone with a young girl in a room". Arbeau then goes on to mention
that it's sometimes livened up (passemezzo or "bassedance" and Spanish pavan
- which include canary steps) and also that "some dancers now divide the
double". He seems to be saying you can do galliard variations, starting on
the second single, though he doesn't give any examples.

Hope that helps!
