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 focuses on building strength, flexibility, stamina and most of all confidence. In this class students will work on improving classical ballet technique. Steps will be adapted to suit all levels so don't worry if you have no experience or tons of experience. We will work to a level that suits every dancer. Ballet targets the whole body and improves all areas of fitness. Regular practice can improve posture and balance, whilst toning the body and improving cognitive development.
The physical benefits of regular ballet often become visible within a few weeks of attendance and the positive effects on mental well being are invaluable.

Who is it for?
Anyone aged 11-15, all levels and abilities welcome.

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.
