An 18th C. Minuet Contradance from the "Recueil de Contradance" by Raoul Feuillet, Paris, 1706 is taught by Catherine Turocy, artistic director of the New York Baroque Dance Company for the Santa Barbara Historical Dance Weekend. There are two demonstrations of the dance. The first is overlaid with the original 18th C. Feuillet notation patterns. Please note that the dancers are using the "walking minuet step" and the higher arm positions from the second half of the 18th Century.
