This dance was a commission from my pianist/composer friend who had written an hour long show about Halloween and arranged a performance at an outdoor mall in Meridian Idaho. Teaming up with Ballet Idaho, I got four dancers and choreographed a dance for a very small outdoor stage to appeal to children. Juli had a full band behind us playing her wonderful music. I was then able to present the choreography again for the show with Ballet Idaho a couple weeks later with solo piano
