Piano Music for Ballet Class - Why BalletDigital.com?

Thousands of children and adults take ballet class every day across the world, from beginners to fully fledged professional dancers - that's an immense number of hours of dancing requiring music!

The piano has become the instrument of choice for accompanying ballet lessons over the years but Gavin and Simon (who run this site) are well aware that these days only a small percentage of classes that take place use a real, living person sat at a piano. Of course, nothing can beat the combination of a good teacher working with a great ballet pianist - they can respond immediately according to the course a class may take and tailor music specifically to the nuances of each excercise. That said, there are many occasions when good piano players are neither available or practical, so teachers fall back on recorded piano music to provide the inspiration for their classes, but although there is a fair amount available, quality can be very mixed.
In the past delivery of this piano music this has involved cassette tapes and CDs but increasingly teachers are turning to iPods and other digital mp3 playing devices to provide the musical source for their ballet class. Realising that digital delivery is the future, Gavin and Simon hit upon the idea for www.balletdigital.com; teachers would be able to buy high quality piano ballet music quickly and easily from anywhere in the world (although we've never tested the site at the South or North Poles...) and get on with the important bit - the ballet class!

With years of experience between them playing the piano for ballet at all levels - from children's exams to class for major ballet companies, they have amassed a huge amount of piano music between them that fulfils both of the important requirements of successful ballet class music - first of all it must reflect the specific qualities of each excercise, but secondly, and equally importantly, it must be GOOD MUSIC(!) - after all, it has to have that X-factor that will spur the dancers on to give their all and ENJOY their ballet. Add to this a love of using all styles of music in class (if it's good music and it fits, it gets used!) you can easily formulate the mission of www.balletdigital.com - to provide high quality ballet class music in a cost effective and convenient format.

Teachers who teach a syllabus class will hopefully also find the piano music on this site useful to compliment the syllabus work with 'free' excercises which will help to further develop dancers' sense of artistry, musicality and style - the greater variety of ballet music they dance to, the better!
