Dance was inspired by Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 in A major, Op.92 (1812).
In 1923 Norman wrote to Jack Lindsay (his son):
I am working again on the Dance plate. The musicians come out playing with tremendous gusto, oblivious to every shape, but the background danced into such thin outline that it disappeared and is now in process of reappearing.
Later that same year Norman wrote again to Jack:
I have been thinking of the key of that drawing phase in the 7th symphony, where all restraint, even the restraint of a dance measure, is thrown to the devil; and all hearts and feet leap with ecstasy. But how to get it in a picture. The 7th is not only the dance but all that the dance means. I am trying to express not only the mad whirl of figures dancing into an infinity of light, but that inevitable interlacing of couples that leads them out of the dance room.
