This Grand Allegro is perfect for intermediate dancers but fun for advanced dancers as well. While the pattern is not overly difficult, it has great movement for older dancers and requires attention to detail for younger dancers.
With intermediate dancers, emphasize the softer quality of the arms as a contrast to the quicker, sharper footwork. For added difficulty with advanced dancers (or after several practices with intermediate dancers), have the next dancer start after the previous dancer's first pas de chat.
