Put you best foot forward

Posted by Joshua on August 23, 2010 at 09:11

I was once told in a master class discussing medieval dance that the phrase put you best foot forward derived from the starting position of minuets. Also in many pictures from that era men would pose with their best foot forward to accentuate their calf muscles. Has anyone else heard of this possible origin?
