Ballet Class in America - Vol III

by Stephen Barnes

from the "Create a Class" Series

 Ballet Class in America CD 3

All Original Piano music for the Ballet Class
Very lyric and sensitive - creating a fluid and ethereal world.
Volume III - Many Adagio Selections

17 tracks plus an additional piece:  "Three Pictures from the Heartland" (3 'Reverence Pieces combined into a thought  - for choreography/performances.)
Plus
a booklet of exercise and combination suggestions for each track
and an additional Ballet Class in America idea note pad. 

As with all Create a Class CDs, this disc does not make up and complete ballet class.  Rather, it is a continuing library of musical ideas created at the source - the ballet classroom.  The selections composed in Volume 3 are beautiful adagios, with additional musical selections for classroom center work.

"Stephen create a magical ambience that is so subtle not even professional dancers realize his music has completely focused their bodies and their concentration.  With Steve at the piano, I feel like a great teacher."   Francia Russell, Artistic Director, Pacific Northwest Ballet

"Stephen Barnes is among a handful of master accompanists whose music enhances and compliments a ballet class.   A rare talent!"   Suki Shorer,  School of American Ballet

Excerpts from Create a Class, Vol 1 were used in long time PNB principal dancer, Patricia Barker's video, Patricia Barker, On Pointe Shoes

Stephen Barnes is the principal company class pianist for
Pacific Northwest Ballet.
