ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In my years of accompanying ballet classes, and my experience with recording ballet CDs I have gotten many requests and ideas for recordings. One that particularly stood out was made by a ballet teacher, and friend, Charla Genn. She suggested a recording for only jumpin. Shortly after, when I really thought about it, I realized the music I was playing for allegros was different in the audition classes with Hubbard Street and to the next day with a class for New York City Ballet; there are many types of petite allegros rhythms that I haven’t used on a CD. Normally on a recording for ballet class, there are only 2 or 3 allegro tracks, and these don’t accommodate students at various levels.

I have put together a collection of music for jumping: introduction to allegro steps, petite allegro, grand allegro, and those hard to find medium tempo exercises for the beginners and intermediates. Here is an exhaustive effort to collect as many rhythms and tempi as I could put on one album. It is a supplement to your favorite class CDs.

In collecting ideas for the choices of music and tempi I was advised by some of the best teachers in the business, ranging from the Vaganova syllabus, Balanchine-style allegros, Cuban-based technique, and all-around allegros. Special thanks for musical inspiration and consultation go to Roberto Munoz, Adrienne Dellas, Felipe Diaz, Sean Lavery, Arch Higgins, Fabrice Herrault, Lori Klinger, Melinda Howe, David Howard, Nancy Bielski, and Warren Conover.
