In an era where almost anything is possible within the field of entertainment, classical ballet endures. Perhaps one reason for this is the power of live music to elevate a performance. A live orchestra can transform a simple dance routine into a beautiful and emotive experience.

Here are five reasons why live music makes ballet performances better:

  • Live music makes you feel the emotions of the dancers more.

  • Live music helps you understand the story better.

  • Live music can make you appreciate the ballet more.

  • Live music can help you connect with the dancers on a personal level.

  • Live music just makes ballets more fun!
