Ballet (Beginners)

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.
