This course is perfect for those completely new to ballet as well as those wanting to return to the basics and really refine and enhance their technique in a slower paced and mindfully delivered class.
Regular dance classes do not always provide the time or tailored support that enable us to fully understand how to execute movements in the most functional and effective way. It is easy as a Beginner to feel lost or unsure of what exactly you are meant to be doing. We are passionate about investing in adult dancers in the same way schools do for children or pre-professionals; and we know this approach takes time, patience and support. Throughout this course, we will provide you with structured and detailed lessons by breaking down the essentials of ballet barre and key centre steps.
We will also explore practices to develop safe movement patterns and introduce you to key conditioning exercises. This is a chance for keen adult ballet dancers to learn to engage the right muscles and work towards clean and controlled centre combinations and choreography. The class is a safe space to ask questions and receive feedback and corrections. Our goal is to nurture and support dancers in developing a holistic and sustainable ballet practice. We aim to instil a deep understanding of ballet and your body; helping you to progress quickly and minimise the risk of injury or overuse.Read Less
In addition to developing a strong technical foundation; these classes aim to help students learn more about this beautiful art form; how dance can be used in storytelling and how we can convey our emotions and narratives through our bodies. We have a clear focus on individual style, artistry, musicality and performance quality and practice these through short routines and combinations.
Ballet is something we can enjoy at any age and dancing is something that is natural to each and every one of us; within the right environment, we can all excel at it. It is healing, rejuvenating and invigorating, so come along and give it a go :)
This course is taught over 8 weeks and runs from Wednesday 06th April - Wednesday 25th May. The classes takes place every Wednesday between 8-9pm at WAC Arts (2 minutes from Belsize Park).
