What is the only thing more thrilling than landing a triple pirouette on the left with pure ease and grace? Doing it while being accompanied by the “Happiest Playlist on Earth!” Yes, I am saying there is a full ballet playlist filled with every possible Disney sing-along you can think of! :)
I have been thinking a lot lately about how much the artistry and passion of the ballet accompanist is transmitted to the dancers and teacher of the class. I become completely inspired when I am able to connect with and really FEEL the soul of the accompanist. Another added bonus? When you are able to sing along to the songs being played! This allows me to take my mind off of my hyper-analytical brain and enjoy, smile, dance, and BREATHE!
This is why we at Ballegro have collaborated with Emanuele Lucchisani to offer you a Magic Ballet Playlist that can be used for any class and any age level! Emanuele is a young and talented jazz pianist, composer and ballet arranger who plays mesmerizing music with immense sensitivity and musicality. He is one of those rare and special ballet accompanists who has his eyes glued attentively on the dancers and exercises from over the piano and improvises a series of original, suitable and BEAUTIFUL compositions for the entire class!
We are incredibly delighted to welcome Emanuele to the Ballegro accompanist staff (no musical pun intended), and we hope you will enjoy his Fall (and Christmas) playlists as much as we do!
