Imagine performing your allegro to Daft Punk, your pirouettes to Katy Perry, your pliés to Maroon 5, your jetés to Jason Mraz…

Reimagined for Ballet transforms well-known pop songs, structurally and stylistically, into mazurkas, tangos, hornpipes, rags, waltzes, polkas, barcarolles, rumbas, jigs and a variety of other dance forms. The tracks are arranged and performed on a beautiful grand piano by experienced ballet pianist and record producer, Andrew Holdsworth. The music was devised in collaboration with three ballet teachers and the tracks are sequenced in a traditional class format.
