Classics For KidsThis month, Classics for Kids features Franz Joseph Haydn.
This week's show is Minuets

The minuet is a dance that started in the 1700's in the French court. Gradually, the minuet began to be used for non-dancing purposes, as a musical form -- especially as the third movement of symphonies. Minuets found their way onto the stage, too, in operas, plays, and ballets.
