Being inspired by Bela Bartok and his writing for pedagogical purposes, Holsinger wrote Gypsydance to give young musicians an opportunity to experience music written in a modal key (F dorian) as well as a more common major key (E-flat major).
It was also written to challenge the young player to focus on playing a variety of styles within one piece.
