Program Notes

Four Short Festive Dances is a fun little selection that allows students the opportunity to learn about different dance styles from various areas of the world. The first dance is a “galliard,” which is a form of Renaissance dance and music popular all over Europe in the sixteenth century. The second dance is a “waltz,” which is a ballroom and folk dance in triple time (3/4). “Samba,” the third dance, is a Brazilian dance and musical genre originating in Bahia, with its roots in Brazil (Rio de Janeiro) and Africa via the West African slave trade and African religious traditions. “Hoe-Down” is a type of American folk dance or square dance in duple meter and also the musical form associated with it.
