There is a great CD out of Doug Corbin who is accompanist for the uber-famous ballet teacher David Howard. http://www.danceclassmusic.com/9535.html

Probably choose some upbeat pop music, even ‘G6′ would do. If you like this music just choose 3 or 4 of your favourite songs and off you go. If you don’t think upbeat music suits for your ballet then use some music from your syllabus or some Giselle or Swan Lake music would do. Tap, I guess normal music would do.
Anything really as it’s just warm-up, although upbeat music keeps you going.
