Ballet can sometimes be viewed as an elitist art form but that is far from the case. We believe that everyone should have the chance to learn ballet regardless of age or gender. Ballet teaches you to use your body properly – you learn how your muscles work, where your strength and balance come from. As well as keeping you strong, ballet increases your fitness levels. If you are working properly you will feel your muscles after the barre section of a class.
Ballet will improve your posture with every class. You will walk away a little taller than when you left! We aim for you to come away with knowledge and techniques that you can apply to everyday life. How to walk engaging your core muscles, how to safely lift a heavy object. Ballet dancers are strong in body but also in mind. They know how to keep their bodies safe. For beginners, it can take a while to start to really feel the flowing movements and the feeling of freedom and joy within the movement. Stick at it, it will happen and when it does all that hard work will have paid off. For one class, leave everything else behind, focus on your body, on yourself, on the music, (on your teacher). Enjoy!
