Description

Festival & Shows

This Suite of 21 Dances was inspired by a visit to the Orchid Garden in Barbados.

The pieces have been carefully chosen to reflect the beauty in music for Classical dance in Ballet and Classical Character.

There is a small selection of Piano only pieces for those who prefer simple arrangements; and fully orchestrated items for the “grander” production.

Tempo and contrasting mood changes are included, and a choice of 1 1/2 to 3 minute compilations
