Re: What dance do you do to 5/4 music?

I did misread your Foxy reference. It's not one with which I'm familiar.

However, your 5/4 reference got me thinking. I came across it a few times when I was in music school along with a few other obscure time signatures. If you are into humorous use of rhythms you might take a listen to the Mason Williams tune called "The Last Great Waltz" which ends with a whimsical use of 5/4.

I can visualize modifying a bolero to fit. Hmmm!

I enjoy doing show dances to unusual music.

Good luck!

Hi, I have a student who is a musician. She wanted to do something REALLY different. She pulled out Dave Brubeck's Take Five. Before I would attempt it I looked up what others had done to that piece. You Tube has a few. Once I got to where my brain would count that time signature it was fun. We were able to transpose a lot of international foxtrot after we slowed it down a bit

I would love to see video of that performance.
