also, my advice is this: ask the maestro/a what kind of exercises s/he teaches, and what kind of rhythm each one of these implies; then search for the best works.

when i started i played tchaikovski jugendsalbum, schubert and chopin waltzes.

best luck

ok well my sister being the ballerina she is has a fat lot of cds with ballet class music on it, except she's taken most of them with her to england so i still have a couple. so instead of just picking some and typing them up i'm just going to scan the backs and you can have a look at what they're chosen for each exercise. you could go into some ballet shops and have a look at their ballet class cd collection and see what's on them too.

yeah chopin waltzes are good, my sis knows them better than me she's danced to them so much!
