In part of a programme on the origins of American music, there are of course its Irish roots, especially when it comes to dance. In this sequence three types of traditional Irish dance are being performed to the sound of a musical group consisting of a piano, a violin and Irish percussion: We see the "Brush dance" or "Broom dance", a dance for two, which is fast and athletic, and a traditional dance performed by a very serious and focused young girl.
