On our timeline and in our Tapestry studies we are entering Napoleon’s world. Last week, however, we took a minuet-step backward, to the court of Louis XIV, and the French Baroque era!
The girls worked hard, two hours a day, learning a Polanaise, the Sarabande, the Allemande, and, of course, a Minuet! They danced to harpsichord music, and their breaks featured a different additional instrument each day. Flute, bassoon, clarinet, french horn, oboe, violin, and cello gave demonstrations!
History was entwined throughout, and even this slow-brained mommy learned bunches.
Kendra! Your right wrist is drooping.
