BALLET | LEVEL 1

Mon 23 Sep - Mon 2 Dec  - 6.00PM - 7.15PM
£85
Suitable for ages 16+...
Book

This class will focus on the fundamentals of ballet technique. This class is recommended for beginners and those with less than 2 year’s experience in ballet, or for those who have not attended a ballet class for several years.

Led by our experienced tutor, Gail Lister, participants of this structured class can expect to:

  • Improve core strength, posture, coordination, and flexibility
  • Develop technique and stamina
  • Learn the French terminology for ballet exercises

Each class will start with a warm up at the barre before practicing techniques and positions needed for centre work. The second half of the class moves into the centre to practice a mixture of turns and small allegro (jumping) moves, before ending with a slow and gentle stretch on the floor.

Please wear clothes that you are comfortable moving in and bring a reusable bottle of water. Water fountains can be found on the ground floor and 1st floor of the building.

 

If you have never attended a ballet class, you will find it useful to look up the basic ballet positions of the feet and arms before you join the class.

We also offer a Level 2 ballet class. If you are unsure which class level is appropriate for you, please don’t hesitate to contact our Sales & Admin Team on 01473 295230 who would be happy to advise you.

 

Term dates: Monday 23 September – Monday 2 December 2024
Half term: There will be no classes on Monday 28 October 2024

Please note: if you wish to pay for the term in two half-termly instalments, please get in touch with our friendly Box Office team on 01473 295230.
