Contains the printed music for the Discovering Repertoire class, development exercises and variations for Male/Female. Swan Lake and The Nutcraker. To be used in conjunction with the Level 4 Book, CD and DVD.
The Royal Academy of Dance’s Discovering Repertoire programme has been created with the aim of preserving the heritage of classical ballet as an art form and keeping the history of the discipline alive. Each level consists of a basic class unit and two units comprising a breakdown of simple development exercises, leading to a variation from a well-known classical ballet: these include Coppélia, Giselle, The Sleeping Beauty, Paquita, Swan Lake and The Nutcracker. The variations have been adapted for this programme and are similar to those performed on stage.
