Latin American Dances is an original suite of three dances for string orchestra; each movement characterizes a different dance rhythm from Latin America. The first movement is a "Beguine," which is a ballroom dance popularized in the 1930s. The Beguine originated in the Caribbean islands of Martinique and St. Lucia. The second movement is a "Tango," a dance from Argentina which originated in the late 1800s. The rhythm of the Tango is similar to the "Habanera" from Cuba. The final movement is a "Jarabe," a dance rhythm from the Mexican state of Jalisco which is popular in mariachi music. The Jarabe is in 6/8, with contrasting sections in 3/4 and 2/4. Latin American Dances is dedicated to the outstanding music educator, William Dick; it was premiered by the Westlake High School Orchestra (Austin, Texas), conducted by James Edwards.
