Harmonically, the work incorporates bitonality and chromaticism. Metric modulation is employed throughout the work, and syncopated patterns are essential in both melodic and accompaniment writing. The demands of range, articulation, and irregular meter make Symphonic Dance No. 3 challenging for young players. Because the score and not utilize a key signature, players must be proficient in reading accidentals.

The modal characteristics, rhythms, and finely woven melodies depict what Williams called the pageantry of traditional Latin American celebrations -- street bands, bull fights, bright costumes, the colorful legacy of a proud people.
