Adult Ballet Classes

Our Adult Ballet classes are tailored to the specific needs of Adults and we offer a variety of classes at many of levels:

  • Basic Beginners – this is for the Adult that has had no ballet or dance training and gets you ready to move into Beginners level.
  • Beginners – if you have danced  as a child then this would be the class to start at.
  • Beginners plus – if you have danced as a teenager then this is the class for you.
  • Open class – this is for the more advanced adult who perhaps has had a number of years experience at the higher grades.
  • Pointe Class – you are required to be at beginners plus level to under take this class. This will build your strength to enable a safe transition to pointe and/or build on your pointe work strength.
  • Pilates Class – to supplement your ballet training building core strength.
  • Contemporary – this is an expressive style of dance which combines Classical and Modern techniques. These classes aim to release tension, increase body mobility and strength.

 

In addition, we offer grade 6 and 7 syllabus Adult classes for those wanting the structure of working towards an exam.  However the exam is optional.

Pilates classes will also be held  in conjunction with some of the Dance to your own Tune classes so if you wish your pre-schooler to attend these classes you can do 1/2 hour pilates at the same time or if you dont have a pre-schooler then you can still attend these classes.

UNIFORM – Ballet shoes are required.  There is no uniform as such – wear whatever you feel most comfortable in.  A black camisole leotard and skirt will be required for exams however this can be discussed with your teacher closer to the time.
