Xmas Dance Party: rag

Stylized marches or cakewalks from the 1890s and since have featured ragged syncopation. Ragtime music usually results in swing dancing. (I recommend doing the robot.)

The Heftone Banjo Orchestra (featuring Brian Heffernan) really brings out the complex footwork with their “Santa Claus Rag.”

Country Joe and the Fish attempt to add a message in their “Dirty Claus Rag.”
