Dance (music)

Dance as a musical form is a smaller musical composition intended for the presentation of dance. It can be used as an accompaniment for actual dance, but its main purpose is music as such.

Dance can be part of a larger composition, such as symphony or ballet. In this case it is similar to the part of a libretto that tells about a dance that happens according to the plot.
