ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Process
Virginia and Megumi had so much success with their collaboration on "Alice In Wonderland", they decided to repeat the process in for "The Little Mermaid" Ballet. For their Annual Spring performance, an “original ballet” is chosen based on what would best suit the students.

Over many months, Megumi will play for ballet class, and we choose music that best represents the story line.
Megumi's versitility and musical choices are many, so it is always hard to choose which ones to use!

What you find here is the “complete” Little Mermaid Ballet as it was presented at the Aloha Theatre on May 26, 2013. Amazingly, all of the music, it it’s order for the ballet, also fits perfectly to accompany a complete ballet class.

We hope you enjoy:
