About DanceInspire

Beautiful and Inspirational Music for Ballet, Tap, Contemporary Classes and more!

DanceInspire is an exciting and inspirational new range of music for dancing. Featuring original music for ballet, tap and contemporary dance, aimed at all levels from tiny tots through to professional, the music is available on CD or in MP3 download form.

CDs can be purchased on this website by Credit Card or Paypal, or by sending a cheque for 15.00 (+ p&p) made payable to DanceInspire to: 49 Rose Drive, Chesham, BUCKS., HP5 1RR, U.K., quoting your name, address and order along with your payment.

The music has been composed and performed by widely acclaimed pianist, Adrian Sutcliffe, whose work includes many performances at the Royal Opera House in London and whose compositions have been featured on Classic FM Radio and on BBC2, as well as at venues throughout the UK from the South Bank to Saddlers Wells.

All of the music has been written through extensive consultation with experienced dancers, dance teachers and examiners, to provide a range of inspiring music which will breathe new life into your classes, rehearsals, performances and shows! Whilst each album is carefully tailored to the corresponding style, level and individual exercise, the music is just as useable at other levels. In addition, our Music to Order service enables you to order the same pieces at different lengths and speeds or with any other adaptations you might require.

For any further information you are always welcome to email us on: office@danceinspire.co.uk

Meanwhile you can listen to samples of the various CDs on offer, make purchases at the Online Shop and browse through our Reviews Page (and of course contribute yourself via email, which we very much welcome!). As mentioned above there is also our ‘Music to Order’ service for those who need specific music of different genres, lengths, characters and speeds. We’re always happy to discuss details for such commissioned work and prices are available on request.

Please take your time to browse through the music on offer. We are always pleased to receive feedback, in particular with a view to suggestions for new additions to our range, which is continually expanding. We look forward to hearing from you!
