Two-Part (Binary) Form

  • Two main sections

  • Both sections are often repeated

  • Most Baroque dance movements are in binary form (ex. gavotte, waltz, etc.)

  • First section

    • Open construction (ends with a half cadence or cadence in a related key)

  • Second section

    • Longer than first

    • Closed construction (ends with a perfect authentic cadence in original key)
