These classes would suit Total beginners, students with little ballet experience or those who may have taken a long break since their last class.
Class will start at the ballet barre and moves then to the centre of the room for the more choreographic part.
The exercise sequences are kept relatively simple but not less challenging in order to see results in terms of muscle tone, posture, coordination, musicality and confidence.
Mixed Level Ballet
These classes are recommended to those students who have taken ballet classes for a minimum of 1 year and with no more than 6 months break.
This level is based on the student's good knowledge of most of the basic ballet steps and movements and requires familiarity with their names and enough confidence during their execution.
As this is a faster and more complex course compared to the beginners level, if unsure of which class to attend, we recommend starting with our beginner class and eventually moving up to this class later.
Pointe shoes optional.
