moreilly Posted December 20, 2010 Report Share Posted December 20, 2010 Is it common for dancers to ask the musicians in a performance to change the tempo of certain pieces of music to accommodate how they want to dance? I have a friend who played the celeste in our local ballet company's production of The Nutcracker, and he was miffed (to put it pleasantly) that the dancers kept asking him to change tempo on different sections of the music. I was just wondering if this is common practice and the sort of dilemma that naturally comes when you have two different types of performers working together (ie dancers and musicians).
