Quality (of the dancing)
Demonstration quality (What does this mean?)

This video from the RSCDS Archive intersperses a performance of the dance with author Barry Skelton expounding on the history and inner workings of the dance as well as the selection of the music. The video contains a demonstration quality performance (twice through) from time 3:00 to 4:10, and again from 7:10 to 8:20.
