is a brief and lively dance. It takes its name from the French badiner
(to jest). The term arose during the 18th century when the badinerie was first included as a movement in the Baroque suite
. Johann Sebastian Bach
's (1685-1750) badinerie from his Orchestral Suite
No. 2 in B minor for flute
, BWV 1067, is perhaps the best-known example.
Badinage can also refer to playful repartee, or banter.
