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 Advanced Ballet class is designed to challenge experienced, confident dancers who are looking to further develop their technique and artistry. Class will start with a series of exercises at the barre to warm up, continuing with centre and corner work and will alternate weekly to include either classical ballet repertoire, neo-classical choreography or a full body stretch to relax muscles. 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, using a wide variety of music for motivation. The class is designed to develop many skills including balance, co-ordination, musicality, strength and flexibility, muscle tone, stamina and fitness.

Who is it for?
Anyone aged 16+ who is an experienced, confident ballet dancer.

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.
