Thanks very much for finding this and putting it up. These pieces are old friends of mine and I did a little post on them.

The second choreography seems quite akin to the early 20th century swing steps because of the quick tempo. How much of this is historical and how much is modern choreography?

I have absolutely no clue.

The first steps are in durations of two quarter plus one quarter followed by one quarter plus two quarters in two measure steps. Aside from the pattern on the floor, it seems very straight forward. As with the faster minuet's choreography, it would be interesting to know how much is modern and how much is historical.

WOW! My question is where is this from and who paid those people to dress like that?! Is there some sort of organization of people who just like to dance in the baroque style?
