#DancePassion with Mozart, Debussy and a tango

A special edition of the In Tune Mixtape for #DancePassion featuring a minuet by Mozart, Debussy's version of the tarantella and an alluring tango.

A special edition of the In Tune Mixtape for #DancePassion featuring a muscular minuet by Mozart, Debussy's version of the whirling tarantella and an alluring tango. But first, don your doublet and hose and bow politely for a selection of Renaissance dances by Tylman Susato, and Barbara Strozzi's yearning passacaglia, Che si puo fare. Then a traditional Afghan Kataghani and to end, a high-spirited Hopak from Tchaikovsky's opera Mazeppa.
