........MUSIC.........
Teachers and students are demanding more variety in the music for ballet class. The original compositions and familiar songs on this album respond to this demand and are also examples of the wide range of music that can be used in the teaching of ballet. David Howard and Steven Mitchell first worked together at the Boston Ballet when David was a guest teacher at the conservatory and Steven was the principle pianist. This recording is a result of that enjoyable experience and is their contribution to Ballet of Today. This double record set contains thirty original and familiar solo piano melodies for an intermediate ballet class. All the music begins with a four count introduction. At the Barre, each selection ends with a long balance and in the center the selections are extra long to allow for several groups of dancers. All the bands are repeated.

Visual Notes
to
"Ballet Of Today"
This DVD accompanies the album (CD sold separately), "David Howard & Steven Mitchell - Music For Ballet Class" and contains a complete ballet class for intermediate level training. David Howard instructs two dancers from the David Howard Dance Center by clearly showing each combination of steps before the music starts and offering suggestions after the exercise is over. The dancers demonstrate the exercises in both directions at the Barre and all the combinations in the Center. Steven Mitchell has created arrangements of twenty five melodies to be used in the ballet class. The standard four count introduction is combined with easy to follow rhythms and uplifting melodies. Many of the selections on the album are contained on this visual demonstration with some of the longer melodies for Center work fading out after the exercise has been performed several times. This DVD is a non-chaptered video stream in a clear unmarked case which shows the label of the disc.  What's this?
