Fire Dance by David Shaffer. Concert band. Young Concert Band. Command Series. Audio recording available separately (items CL.WFR317 & CL.WFR321). Grade 2.5. Extra full score. Composed 2001. Duration 4 minutes, 16 seconds. Published by C.L. Barnhouse (CL.011-3157-01).
Big, bold and full of percussion, this exotic high energy Shaffer composition is sure to be a huge favorite with developing bands. Lots of extra percussion parts to keep even the largest drum section involved. Includes a slow "mysterioso" section providing a contrast to the energetic nature.

This song is awesome!!!
This Fire Dance burns with the power of a raging fire! It has awesome dynamics, and a mysterious flute melody in the middle. Overall, this song is amazing; my 7th grade classmates love to play it!
