A Dancer's Dance

Anselm Lingnau · Nov. 4, 2014, 3:30 p.m.

I like this dance because it flows well and includes an interesting selection of formations. Especially the Rose Progression is seldom seen and would deserve more exposure. I'm not enthusiastic about the Dance to each Corner & Set starting on bar 9 (which means it goes across the 16-bar boundary and ends in the middle of the next phrase) but I suppose that can't really be helped.

This dance is ball programme material.
