7 Week Classical Ballet Course for Beginners
Classical ballet is the perfect discipline for improving your posture, coordination, grace and control. If you are new to ballet and always wanted to know how it feels, this course is for you! Whether you practice Pilates or Yoga or go to Barre classes (or teach!), learn more about dance technique and good alignment while moving to piano music.
We start the class with a warm up at the barre, then move to the centre to develop more strength and balance and move into more expansive steps. Combinations moving through the studio create a wonderful sense of flow before finishing with a reverence. If you teach barre classes, but have no previous dance experience, you will learn valuable and transferable aspects of phrasing, progression and safe technique!
You don't need any previous experience, just something comfortable to wear and socks or ballet slippers (no sticky socks or rubber soles!)
