This chapter discusses the idea that a lost dance can be approached like a puzzle with missing pieces. A picture can be created with the parts we know, and the reconstructor in charge of dance reconstruction fills in the blanks. The sections of Funeral March for which there are the most textual and photographic information are set on dancers. The studio research on the first Tragic section of the ballet with the dance artists of the Grand Rapids Ballet, as well as the performance of this section are detailed.

Keywords:   Funeral March, Grand Rapids Ballet, dance reconstruction
