The programme includes Erik Satie's graceful Gymnopedie No 1; the grandeur of the Emperor Waltz by Johann Strauss; and memories of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers in Gordon Langford's medley of tunes from Irving Berlin's "Top Hat" . We invite you to stomp your way through the Mexican Hat Dance and clomp your way through Herold's Clog Dance.
