Do you know how to do the Minuet?

The Minuet is a colonial dance that we do at our annual King's Ball in Ste. Genevieve. The King's Ball is held every year before lent, and everyone dresses up in colonial garb and dances and searches for a bean in their piece of cake, the King's Cake.

The King's Ball this year has come and gone, but it was written up in the Chicago Sun Times newspaper. Click here for the article.

I went to the King's Ball once, with my parents. I think I was 13. Maybe I'll try to find that picture.
