Highland Dance Boston performed three dances at the
concert put on by the Boston Branch of the RSCDS that was held at the Museum of our National Heritage in Lexington, MA. Two of these were
dances that we choreographed: Riptide and
Shadow & Thought.
Riptide combined movements from jazz and highland dance and was
set to a medley of tunes on Halali's 2003 recording. Shadow & Thought
combined movements from modern and country dance and was set to the tunes
A Shadow & A Thought and Lightnin' Bug that were written and performed by Hanneke Cassel on her recording, Some Melodious Sonnet.
third dance was a hard shoe dance choreographed by Judy Erickson, and set to the pipe tune, Little Cascade.
