"Stately Dance" is in essence a classic Minuet, complete with Baroque articulation. The composer allows the performer, by not adding slurs, to chose to do a non-legato accompaniment, which would be in line with Baroque performance practice. This is a great opportunity to introduce this concept to the young performer. Other classic elements are sequences and four bar phrases.
