Herbert's output in this period of his life is significant because it represents something new. During his first period Herbert copied and personalized the European operetta tradition; in his second he transformed that tradition into a form that, because of its theatrical and sociological focus, became what he called American operetta; now, in his third period, he worked to develop what may be called the dance operetta. In each of his later compositions it is the dance, in its various forms and movements, which assumes an increased structural importance.
