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. You’ll start with a series of exercises at the barre, progressing to travelling movements and sequences in the centre, using a wide variety of music for motivation. Each exercise is 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+, with a little bit of ballet experience.

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.
