This article, which examines Middleton's techniques of tempo, timing, and spacing in light of Renaissance dance, begins with some general observations about dancing in Middleton's time and then moves on to choreographic technique in his work. As Middleton sometimes wrote his plays together with other writers, it will be important to consider dance in drama in light of such collaborations.
