This dance was inspired by ...

This dance was inspired by the music “McGregor’s Leap,” which brings to the deviser’s mind dancers swirling into petronella turns. The title of the music suggests the Beatrix Potter story “The Tale of Peter Rabbit,” in which the young Peter Rabbit sneaks into Mr. McGregor’s garden (to eat the vegetables that give him the energy to leap) and he is chased about the garden by Mr. McGregor.
