Book and Teaching Guide
A song cycle for voices and Orff instruments. Two instrumental interludes, providing opportunity for movement and dance, allow the performance of the work as a single larger piece. The contemporary harmonies create a dramatic and sophisticated experience for junior and secondary school grades. A useful mini-score is provided. Total duration is approx. 17 minutes.
"Dancing Songs" was commissioned by the American Orff-Schulwerk Assoication and first performed by South Central Minnesota Orff Chapter at the AOSA National Conference in Kansas City in 1985.
