And finally …

Sabre Dance” is a movement in the final act of Aram Khachaturian’s ballet Gayane (1942), where the dancers display their skill with sabres. It is Khachaturian’s best known and most recognizable work worldwide.

It is notable for its employment of percussion instruments, especially the xylophone. Its middle section is based on an unnamed Armenian folk song.

“Sabre Dance” is considered one of the signature pieces of 20th-century popular music. It was popularized by covers by pop artists, first in the US in 1948 and later elsewhere. Its use in a wide range in films and television over the decades have significantly contributed to its renown. “Sabre Dance” has also been used by a number of figure skaters from at least five countries in their performances.
