Great music helps us teach a great class! Thanks, we like all the CD's. David Plumpton is our favorite pianist. Keep them coming!
(Feb. 2018) Comment from a long-time customer:
Please continue to provide your great Ballet CDs and DVDs. I especially like the Russian styled class music. I love Jay Distributors! Thank you!
(Feb. 2018) Comment from Robbie, a long-time customer:
After many years, I find these visual notes in the Bodarc series for elementary and primary ballet and their accompanied music to be premium offerings. Beyond their presentation, little to nothing, in my span of teaching years (30), has matched them.
I would like to see new ones in this Bodarc series if they are of the same caliber and created by excellent teachers and musicians such as those I recently reordered to replace my video tapes. Nothing as significant as these have surfaced since the first decade of 2000 for pre and beginner ballet students.
Comment from Ms. Lynne: "working with you for years and loving it!"
I've been teaching Ballet to little girls for a very long time, that have become beautiful young ladies; and I owe it to working hard, trusting in my creative forces and using the best music that I can find for their "connection" to the art of Ballet and me! Regards! Ms. Lynne
Comment from Lynne Morrison (The Old Well School of Dance, Moffat, Scotland) :
Thank you so much, your Start Tapping DVD and CD (9954) has been an excellent help with my younger tap class.
Comment from Maria:
I have placed my order and will probably purchase other albums. You have some CDs that are impossible to find anywhere else. Thank you for selling these items! I would also like to add that I am happy with the customer service provided. I was very appreciative of quick responses to my questions, and being notified when an out of stock item was available for purchase. Keep up the good work!
Comment from Hiroshi Horiuchi (Japan):
27 years ago when we started to import your products, Lynn Stanford's titles changed Japanese ballet class lesson from boring to exciting. At the time, many dance teachers wanted to use his music in their own classrooms.
I am proud that I've been able to introduce your products to Japan.
Thank you. Best regards, Hiroshi

Comment from Nurit Krauss:
"I teach ballet at Santa Monica YWCA to nonprofessional students of all ages. Ballet is an excellent tool for complete fitness and music makes it inspirational as well. I was looking for Lynn Stanford CDs, and you were the only ones to carry his label. From then on, you are my Dance Music Source. Your customer service is the best. Your way of doing business is commendable!" Many thanks, Nurit
Comment from Judy Rice about the Bodarc CD, "Ballet & Opera Classics for Kids" #9640C
"The key to good recorded music is that it should have real live passion in it. Adam Pernell used to be a pianist at the Joffrey Ballet School, and you can hear his passion in this album. You don’t feel like you’re working with a CD, but with a live pianist."
"Since the early 1980's I have filled my teacher library with music and visual notes for primary and elementary ballet from Jay Distributors.
No other distributor can hold a candle to you. Please, please ---- more for these levels."
"Just wanted to say that Laura Hausman's BEST OF THE BEST ballet class cd is one of the best I have heard.My classes are really enjoying it This is my 60th year as a Ballet Teacher. I have used lots of music during those years and this cd is top of the line."
From a customer about our DVD previews:
I LOVE YOUR CHANNEL.. Thanks for posting the videos!
"Please highlight Laurent Queval and Sylvain Durand on your website! I stumbled upon them on your website a couple of years ago and as a ballet teacher of 23 years I can say that their music is so refreshing. I want more ballet teachers to find this treasure! The jazzy music keeps us so peppy and in great moods during class. What an amazing pianist he is! Did you even know that on both CD's there is a funny secret surprise song that plays about a minute or two after the Reverence? It's not written anywhere on the CD. One day, my class ended and I had not turned off the CD and out of silence came this hysterical song! Do they have any other CD's out beside the two? Please, please, please get them in if they do! If you promote them a little, I'm sure they would start flying off the shelves!"
State Street Dance Studio
From an enthusiastic viewer of our DVD Previews:
"Wonderful videos! Lovely, beautiful! Congratulations!"
Email from a customer in Pennsylvania:

Note from Barbara & Andrew at DANCE SPACE, Vero Beach, FL
"Love your products and company. I have tried others and they don't come close. Thanks for your great stuff." Andrew and Barbara.
Note from Australia about our new feature: mp3 downloads
"Yes, I bought all the mp3 files from one CD title and it was great. I am already using the music in class. I think it is a brilliant way to buy such specialised music so look forward to more becoming available. The files all downloaded easily with no hitches and as I said it was great to have the tracks immediately and to be able to use them straight away.
"Thank you for having one of the better websites for finding ballet music!"
(Wendy Yorio, Dance Instructor, Buffalo, NY)

From Gloria Polack, dance instructor in Israel, commenting on Michael Roberts' music series:
"Rebecca sent me all your CD's. Wanted you to know how much your exquisite music means to me and dancers here as we hold classes in a bomb shelter. Not to be overly dramatic, but your music is definitely, literally saving me in these tense times. Many thanks to your brilliant and sensitive being.The class shouted out your name - Michael! Michael! when I brought in the CD's. All our dancers love you. You can't believe how much your music is helping us here."

Reagan Hughes - Grenada School of Dance (Grenada, Mississippi)
"Jay Distributors is the only company I have found that allows you to hear samples of this quality of music. What you see and hear is what you get. I absolutely love the variety of music and composers. It is so easy to come in from a late dance class and still be able to order online and know you will get your music in a few days. Thanks for your great service, once again."
"Thanks for such great service. I appreciate the speed of delivery and the great prices."
Lynne Butenhoff, River Falls Ballet Academy
Pia Karaspuro - Finland:
"Thank you for the fast delivery of my previous order! Those CD's have been a source of great inspiration and enjoyment both for me and my students. I find it joyful and energizing to construct new combinations while listening to Lynn Stanford's interpretations or compositions. (Pia teaches in several studios in southern Finland.)
"Hello! May I begin by telling you what a wonderful site you have with danceclassmusic.com?!!!! You have outdone anything else I could find on the net! Congratulations, and keep up the good work! YOU HAVE AN AWESOME SITE!"
"I order from you because you are the best site- your sound samples really help! Thanks."
"I've heard from other teachers that your company is based in Dallas and is one of the best resources around."
"I had been to several websites that offer ballet class music, but no others had the sample feature. I am very particular about the style of music and composition that I am seeking. I ordered from Jay Distributors because of the music samples of each CD available! I chose a CD that I never would have if I just had the description and my unfamiliarity with the composer. The sound samples were a true representation of my CD. Thank you and continue to provide the music samples." Tori B. 10/14/03
