Note: This dance was devised ...

Note: This dance was devised for Peter Radcliff to celebrate his 75th birthday, April 29, 2007. Dotty Ueber, Peter's friend and companion, requested a dance to also celebrate Peter's love of birdwatching. The fIrst half of the dance suggests the courtship displays of certain raptors, hence the name. Bars 1-8 are from The Breakdown by John Mitchell.-TW
