The pavane, pavan, paven, pavin, pavian, pavine, or pavyn (It. pavana, padovana; Ger. Paduana) is a slow processional dance common in Europe during the 16th century (Renaissance).

A pavane is a sedate and dignified couple dance, similar to the 15th-century bassadanza, which first appeared in 1508. The music to which it was danced appears originally to have been fast or moderately fast but, like many other dances, became slower over time (Brown 2001).
