What is it?
Ballet is a type of performance dance, that originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th century, and which was further developed in France and Russia as a concert dance form. This class offers an introduction to the joys of classical ballet, through a balanced combination of technique exercises, movement activities and imaginary games. In the class participants will learn basic ballet steps along with games and activities where they are encouraged to use their imagination to become flying fairies, marching soldiers and under the sea creatures. The class will also work towards some performance opportunities throughout the year. This class offers the opportunity to develop skills in a fun environment without the pressure of exams.
