L'esprit de la danse

The spirit of dance

Though dance may be called the art of movement, to say that it is inseparable from music would be an exaggeration. However, the repertoire is full of pieces intended for dancing (ballets, pantomimes), when they are not directly inspired by dance. It has stimulated the creation of music since the dawn of time, both in traditional and in aristocratic usage, such as the minuet in the Baroque period: it was ubiquitous in instrumental suites as well as in opera; in the 19th century, the piano took up the torch of stylization pushed to the limits of refinement. Whether you favour the waltz, mazurka, csardas, or jota, let dance be your next move!
