What is it?
Classical Ballet builds strength throughout the whole body and helps improve flexibility. Dance City offers high quality, fun classes with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, without the pressure of exams. The Intermediate ballet is an ideal progression from beginner’s ballet or for those wishing to return to ballet after a long break, focusing on understanding the fundamental elements of classical ballet, and improving your classical technique. Class will start with a series of exercises at the barre to warm up and will then continue with centre and corner work, using a wide variety of music for motivation. The exercises - some simple and slow, others quicker and more intricate are created to physically work the entire body, and will also enhance your memory retention. The class is designed to develop many skills including balance, co-ordination, strength and flexibility, muscle tone, stamina and fitness.

Who is it for?
Anyone aged 16+ following on from ballet beginners or who is returning to ballet after a break.

What should I wear?
Comfortable clothing, nothing too loose. Ballet shoes or socks.

What do I need to bring?
Something to tie your hair back if you have long hair.
