A CD holding 43 tracks of music that have become part of modern life. David Plumpton plays tunes from all aspects of modern life, from cartoon TV series (The Flintstones) to TV adverts (A finger of Fudge) to movie blockbusters (The pirates of the Caribbean) to Disco and party favourites (Y.M.C.A).

A fabulous, well thoughtout compilation of entertaining tracks arranged to fit perfectly the exercises in ballet class allowing the teacher to concentrate on class instead of fiddling with the music.

  1. Wonderful review by Kirsty on 05/12/2013

    This is a truly gorgeous series of ballet CDs. I am so tired of the boring, old fashioned music on the market, it turns my students away from ballet classes and towards jazz and street classes, where they can dance to tracks they recognise! Nothing wrong with classical music, but it's good to have some tunes that the kids can relate to, at least every few exercises, just to lift their mood. It's great to see them so much more engaged!! I also bought three other titles and they are all wonderfully played, can't wait to see what Mr Plumpton will bring out next... Can't recommend this enough.
