What kind of dances they dance during the 18th century?
And do you have got some good websites about dance-steps for example?

A google search should help you out, there are many sites about 18th century dance out there.

Also I understand that ballet was prominent at the court of Marie Antoinette, and it had been since the time of the Sun King... was ballet back then anything like today's version of "classical" ballet? I know there is a portrait of Antoinette, Ferdinand, and Max putting on a short ballet for one of their older sibling's weddings, and I know Antoinette herself liked ballet... but other than costume (skirt length) were the movements themselves any different in her time?
