A solo excerpt for a technically proficient female dancer. Intricate rhythmic patterns must be clearly and smoothly performed. Lovely showcase for a lyrical performer who can execute the Cecchetti ballet vocabulary with an effortless quality. Notated while Adair choreographed and taught the work to the original dancer.
