This course has already started. Bookings for our next course, starting Wednesday 21 Feb, will open at 5pm on 29 January. To receive a reminder email, click here sign up to our newsletter.

An introduction to ballet, this class teaches the basic principles of classical dance. The class includes a warm up, ballet barre exercises and centre practice. Particular focus will be put on posture, work of the feet and legs and general coordination. Building up over the course of the term, it's a great chance to discover the founding principals of ballet whilst improving your flexibility, strength and musicality.

No prior experience of ballet technique is required. The complexity of the class will increase according to the progress of the participants.

  • This course is for ages 18+
  • This is a 5-week course between Weds 10 Jan - Weds 7 Feb.
  • Our ballet courses are very popular, so we would strongly recommend booking in advance of the first class.
