A Dissertation on The Art of Accompanying Classical Ballet Technique Classes

A huge resource for those interested in accompanying classical ballet: Yee Sik Wong's University of Iowa 2011 dissertation on the art of accompanying classical ballet technique classes. There's a huge amount of info here on pre-existing literature, schools of ballet, pedagogical structure of classes, how music fits in, and techniques that ballet pianists are going to need.

Dr. Wong is now on staff at the Kansas City Ballet.

  1. Thanks for posting this; it contains a LOT of information, including references, of course, to other helpful publications. Despite having a Master's Degree in Collaborative Piano from a reputable university, ballet training was completely overlooked.
