Minuet
It was a carefree and lively dance until presented by the French court in 1650. There it developed into a slow and stately dance, elegant in its simplicity. It consists of a salute to the partner, a high step and a balance, and affords numerous opportunities for an exchange of courtly gestures, bows and curtsies.
