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 18 September – Monday 27 November.

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.
