Grover Dale, the original director of The Magic Show, has said that 'Cane Dance' is from a touring production of The Magic Show and was not in the original production. To his recollection it was a very brief (one minute) excerpt performed to music written by a dance arranger. We have credited the music to Stephen Schwartz under the assumption that it was written to one of his themes. No recording has been traced for this number. It was, however, later used in The American Dance Machine (1978).
