Dance Information

A copycat is one who imitates others' work without adding ingenuity.

The fantasia (from Italian: fantasia; also English: fantasy, fancy, German: Fantasie, French: fantaisie) is a musical composition with its roots in the art of improvisation. Because of this, it seldom approximates the textbook rules of any strict musical form.
