Let's Dance is just the stuff to get those ragtime feet a-twitching. Its form is ABBACC with a 2-bar introduction whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of C and F respectively. In this adaptation for recorder quintet there is quite a bit of instrument changing to accomplish. All the melody voices are required to alternate to their smaller counterparts. The final C-strain in particular has to be played exquisitely to avoid squeakiness. The cover of the original sheet music is illustrated by a bevy of elegant, smiling turkey trotters quite in keeping with the title.
Let's Dance was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
