Ballet Beginners:The perfect class for those getting started or revisiting ballet as an adult!
This class will focus on alignment, the foundation of ballet technique & movement quality - recommended for students that are absolute beginner ballet dancers or adults returning to ballet after having learnt as a child. Our beginner level will work on correct posture and basic positions of arms and legs. You will learn how to identify the right muscles to move the body and how to use the rhythm of the music.
Our ballet classes are about how your body moves naturally in everyday life and how that natural movement transfers to ballet. You don’t need a minimum understanding of basic ballet vocabulary. This class is also an excellent option for those looking to challenge themselves and increase their ballet technique (if any previous experience). This class will focus on technical strength, coordination and movement quality.
Beginners - no experience needed. Discover ballet technique, and its benefits together through barre practice.
