Music for Ballet Class Volume 5

This Volume, played on a Yamaha Grand piano, has 56 tracks of music which is especially appealing for young children, with tunes from musicals, nursery rhymes for "babies" classes, ballet and classical music as well.

The last 15 tracks are devoted to music for short dances, each up to 2 mins, suitable for festivals and auditions from a wide range of music; dynamic (e.g. Bartok, Satie, Rossini) and melodic, lyrical pieces (e.g. Grieg, Massenet, Drigo).
