As the front cover of the original sheet music proudly proclaims, Pony Ballet Dance
was featured in Klaw and Erlanger's great production Mr. Bluebeard
and danced by their famous Pony Ballet, an ensemble of eight charming Vaudeville beauties. The dance itself is a happy pleasing composition in AABBCC form with a 4-bar introduction and a 16-bar interlude between the C strains. The introduction and A-strain suggest a circus-like march whilst the B- and C- dance themes develop dramatically leading to a rousing finale. In this adaptation for recorder ensemble the treble voice has the melodies from start to finish and the instrument itself is used throughout its complete range of notes. All-in-all a jolly work which intermediate level ensembles can readily cope with.
