About The Event

Join our inclusive and inspiring classes to take your ballet to the next level, learn repertoire and refine your technique and artistry.

Join us at each month,  for an afternoon of inspiring movement and work towards learning a famous variation. These classes aim to help those with some experience and knowledge of ballet, work towards learning famous repertoire and variations from iconic classical ballets. (Aimed at adults but mature students from 14+ welcome)

Each workshop will focus on one variation after a general warm up and classical ballet barre. In the hour and a half session you'll get the time to develop skill, technique and artistry. We teach you the variation, exactly as the professionals do it, so you can challenge yourself and dance to your hearts content! However, for those struggling, we always have a simplified version of the steps, so don’t be intimidated and have a go!

You will learn ballet terminology and steps, but equally important, we will focus on your individual artistry, expression and style. We want you to come away achieving every ballet dancers dream performing your solo routine (Don't panic, we will not make you stand up in front of anyone and perform)

So, if you have always wanted to learn some repertoire, at a level suited to your own needs, now is your chance!

Workshops run on Saturdays at 3pm-4.30pm
