New Barn Dance is a beautiful flowing affair, a charming blend of folksy strains with ballroom elegance. Its form is AABBACCDDBBBA with a 4-bar introduction whereby the AD- and BC-.strains are in the major keys of C and G respectively. A description of the dance is given as follows:
Lady stands at the right side of partner, who hold her left hand with his right. Advance one step with right foot, bringing left close up behind it, until the fourth beat of the bar, then bring the left foot forward, poised gracefully in the air. Repeat; commencing with the left foot and poising right. Repeat the whole movement, the for 16 beats (i.e. 4 bars) dance quick Valse or Schottische step in the usual manner with partner. The entire dance is then continually repeated. Gentlemen begin with left foot, and always use reverse foot to ladies.
New Barn Dance was published by H. Franklin Jones, New York, USA.
A tempo of 180 crotchets/min. is suggested.
