Strengthening supplementary instruction is starting to play a key role in the daily routine of the ballet schools. Specially developed ballet programs such as Progressive Ballet Technique and Dancepilates support this movement in a professional and proficient manner. The pieces composed by Barbara Lenz were written exclusively with the aim to musically accompany these particular strengthening exercises.
