    1. Thank you SO much. I haven’t played for a class in many years and here I am this summer playing for advanced barre classes… My bg is in playing “actual” choreographed pieces for opera summer stock so this is SO helpful to see examples of class music.

  1. Hi, just got from a colleague the link of your site. I am new in this world of accompanying ballet classes. I love your site! It is very ingenious the way you did this and of course it is very useful for people like me. Thanks so much! And please keep the sense of humor!
