1. -- The precocious Muse begins her wild, whirling dance -- 2. Entrancing Terpsichore dazzles all those who behold her -- 3. A most majestic and dramatic solo performer -- 4. The beguiling Muse slows and strikes a pose -- 5. Her frenzied dance resumes -- 6. The Muse displays her hypnotic, swaying gracefulness -- 7. She pauses one last time -- 8. Her recollection of past glories, and homage to the ancient circular dances -- 9. The capricious Terpsichore’s Finale!
