Yoshi Gurwell presents a wonderful album of ballet class music for beginning student. Divided into four parts, this double length CD offers music for Floor Work, Center Work, Across the Floor and Freeze Dances. All the melodies are familiar classical ballet music adapted to accompany 48 different exercises for the very young student. The last 6 tracks are devoted to Freeze Dances where the students can do certain poses on cues from the music which teaches the student to listen carefully as they dance. There is even music for ‘Shake-the-body’ where dancers are encouraged to improvise and have fun. From skips, butterfly run, bunny hop and so many more, every simple step is covered in the delightful collection of music!
