Three lovely classical variations from a 1972 work created as a tribute to August Bournonville for American Festival Ballet and now in the repertory of several American, Canadian and European companies. Variation III is a grand allegro, demanding excellent ballon and flowing movement quality. Variation VII, a polka, requires strong pointe work and batterie. Variation X, the shortest, is also the most technically difficult, needing speed, a good jump and secure hops on pointe. These variations have been taught with great success in advanced variations classes. Although the music is from an out of print London LP, a tape is available from the DNB.
