Ballet

Develop grace and poise…..

 

 We run  traditional, free (non-syllabus) ballet classes, although some exercises and port de bras are influenced by the Cecchetti method.

 

The beginners/Coaching class is suitable for people with little experience of ballet or for more advanced dancers who wish to revisit their basic technique. This is a one hour class. The Intermediate class is for students who have studied over many years and will include higher level exercises – adage, and the introduction to pirouettes (turns) when individuals are ready. This class runs for an hour and a half and is for students who are ready for more complicated choreography. Students in this class should already have a good understanding of basic technique, and be prepared to work hard!

 

Fitted clothing / fitness wear is fine although ballet shoes are preferable – split sole canvas flatties are best. Jazz shoes could be worn as an alternative to begin with. Shoes can be purchased for you if required. 


Courses are run over 6-8 weeks.
