Author's Notes:
A few years ago at Pinewoods I called a dance I had just "composed". I was actually trying to teach "The Nice Combination" or "Shades of Shadrack" (both by Gene Hubert), could not make either one work, and just sort of bailed out with this dance. Later that week, at the American Week auction, or whatever week that was, I offered the right to name the dance as an auction item. Richard and Claudia Rose made the highest bid, and since they did not know whether their soon-to-be-born baby would be a boy or a girl, they chose the title "The Baby Rose."
