Also notice that this is not music for a full ballet class but selected pieces originally released on the Ballet Music DK YouTube channel.

  1. Soumer Fleur (verified owner)

    I really enjoyed Soren Bebe’s piano covers in my classes and so do my students. So fun to see their little faces enlighten when they discover that they know that song! Keep doing a great job dear Soren!

  2. Dan Simpson

    Very relaxing music. I have all the Soren Bebe CDs and this is probably the easiest to listen to. But that doesn’t make the music any less interesting. A very 5 star CD.

  3. Charlotte de Neergaard (verified owner)

    Søren Bebe is a fantastic ballet pianist, at his best with a jazz twist! From the beautiful, slow adagios over the grounded, steady rag time tendus and to the grand allegros in 3/4. His music is well played and easy to follow for beginners as well as inspiring and motivating for professionals. Thanks Søren, you facilitate ballet teaching in the best way possible.

  4. Katarina (verified owner)

    Music to enjoy ballet class, even if it´s hard. Very motivating!
