Promenade: Walkin' the Dog
George Gershwin


Promenade: Walkin' the Dog is taken from the movie Shall We Dance, starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. The piece is a simple and elegant little stroll.

In fact, in the 1937 film, it accompanies a scene of (you guessed it) dog-walking, aboard the luxury deck of an ocean liner. Push play on the video when the orchestra begins to play to get a sense of how it all came together!
