American Dance Music celebrates uniquely American music popularized by American dance crazes. A sophisticated hoe-down leads into a Latin dance combined with a Baroque cannon! The slow Serenade recalls the 40s style slow dances while Jazz brings the 50s to the table. The finale, Rockit, is infused with elements of jazz, rock and funk.
