Dance is a universal human activity; something that everyone can do. From toddlers to nonagenarians, everyone in the world can feel a beat and move in some form to music that moves them. The Classic 100 Dance is a celebration of that wordless expression, of flinging your body through space.

When ABC Classic FM asked listeners to nominate the music that makes them move, their responses were as varied as their nominations: this music is the soundtrack to doing the ironing, ‘air conducting’ – even shearing sheep! The only constant was that sense of release and freedom that only comes from dance and movement. 

This 8CD set presents the results of this Classic 100 Countdown – Australian’s favourite classical music event. Featuring highlights from all 100 works in this 15th Classic 100 Countdown, it includes beloved ballet numbers by Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev and Stravinsky, swirling waltzes by Chopin and Strauss, concert favourites by Beethoven, Berlioz, Debussy, Vaughan Williams, Rachmaninoff, Rimsky-Korsakov, Elena Kats-Chernin and Nigel Westlake, and an irresistible array of marches, mazurkas, polonaises, pavanes, fandangos and more!
