One-Legged Dancer was originally composed for toy piano for Yannay's friend and former composition student Josh Schmidt. Stas Venglevski arranged it for the bayan and is performing it frequently on the concert stage. In concert situations, the performer enters and leaves the stage hopping on one foot. Many years after the publication of the composition, Yannay discovered that the dancer and choreographer Homer Avila, now deceased, lost a leg to cancer and continued to dance in his own creations. Organist Gary Verkade arranged this work for his instrument. Jake Fuller filmed and edited the video
