Balanchine the Teacher

This chapter presents music suggested for Balanchine classes. Music for the barre and first four classes should be simple with a good beat. However, the students may be singing along rather than focusing on the execution of the step. The perfect solution would be a pianist who could use the music suggested below as a source and then improvise. The metronome settings give an idea of how fast or slow the step should be, and in almost all instances, the step begins on “and.”
