THE DANCING PIANO


The Dancing Piano:  Improvisations for Ballet Class

After over 20 years of playing for dance, I've finally made my first class CD! Thanks to all the teachers, students, and friends who encouraged me to finally go for it! I've tried to include a good mix of my improvisation styles for Ballet Class. It was difficult to narrow down the pieces. I know that I have enough material for many more CD's!

Most of the pieces are long enought to work on both sides without stopping. I've included a variety of music for the different exercises. Many of the pieces are appropriate for use with other exercises besides the ones suggested.
