How dance heavy is R&H's Cinderella?

When do they dance, if ever, and what type of dance (and who dances it) is it?

In the production I'm in now, we danced for The Prince is Giving A Ball, just simple choreography by our dance instructor. Your Majesty's Dance can be danced to, I suppose, but in our show we just bring food out to the King and Queen. The only time there is a lot of dancing is in Act II. There is a slow gavotte at the beginning of the scene, and then later a waltz. But other than that, there is nothing.

I am directing the show now, and our production will have a lot of dance.I am using 10 fairies, all named after gemstones to open the show. They also do a completely choreograped Ballet for the transformation. Of coures Cinderella and the Prince do a waltz and the entire cast dances the opening. I am also staging the Gavotte as the Itch ballet. The two step sisters pick up a feather dropped by the fairy Godmother, after dusting it with itch powder. They maKE A fool of themselves by scratching through the number. I've always hated boreing dance numbers and this really livens up the ball! Cam
