Danse Bohemien is a quick-step/bohemien dance sure to be a favorite with your audience and band.  I was inspired to write this piece due to two factors.  The first is that I love quick-steps and always have.  The Dance of the Jesters (Tchaikovsky), The City of Lights (Watkins), and Pas Redouble (Saint-Sannes) are among my favorite.  The second factor were two extremely talented percussionists that I had in the band at the time.  I hope you and your students enjoy this piece…it was a lot of fun to write, and thank you to Buddy Brawdy and Haley Denton for the inspiration.  *J.W.
