What are the weirdest "ballet-ified" musical numbers you have ever had to work with in class? Recently we have run the gamut from "All That Jazz" (really amusing to watch 8 year olds dance to) to "Rubber Ducky" (really amusing to watch grown women in pointe shoes wobble across the floor to). Other fine selections include "If I Only Had a Brain" and "We are Siamese (if You Please)"
It's actually really hard to concentrate on what you are doing when you know the lyrics to a song (which is really unfortunate , because I have intimately known far more musicals than the average bear AND I like opera. Horrible combination. Also: too much Muppet Show in my life).


  1. We are dancing to ballet goes pop or something... Something seems strange about pliƩs to lady gaga...

  2. Teddybear's Picnic for adult pointe!
    And the alternative music for one of RAD's grade V excercises is Those Were The Days. Get's stuck in my head for ages afterwards, argh! Not very ballet-y.
