Dance Class III (CD)

On this compact disc titled Dance Class III, Michael Cherry has chosen many outstanding compositions that really fill out the ballet class. Many of the classics are represented here all played in a clear and easy to follow style.

Antoinette Peloso has arranged this music into a generous ballet class with several stretch, petit allegro and tendu tracks. This title contains plenty of wonderful music for any ballet class.


In classic or contemporary ballet, dancing may tell a story, express a mood, or simply reflect the music in movement. Ballet as part of staged performances originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th and 16th centuries and from there spread to France. The creation of classical ballet as we know it today occurred during the reign of the art-loving French king Louis XIV in the mid-17th century. During the Romantic era, ballet technique evolved to express new ideas, most notably with women dancing en point, or on their toes, allowing them to appear weightless and otherworldly.
Among the choreographers who helped bring ballet into the modern age by exploring new visual and dramatic styles are George Balanchine, Antony Tudor and—bridging the worlds of classical dance and Broadway—Agnes de Mille and Jerome Robbins.
