Jacinth's Recommended Dance Books:
Orchesography, by Thoinot Arbeau, et. al.
If you are serious about dance, you should have a copy. It includes a number of dances popular in the SCA, and is likely the main resource used in teaching them today.
Courtly Dance of the Renaissance: A New Translation and Edition of the Nobilta Di Dame, by Fabritio Caroso, et. al.
Translation of period text. Not for the faint of heart.
