Adult dancers: Take your dancing to the next level; work on your technique, pointe work and artistry in this 8-week course.
Regular dance classes do not always provide the time or tailored support that enable us to fully understand and execute some of the harder and more intricate aspects of ballet and so it is natural to feel unsure of how to refine our technique or progress to the next level.
For each class within this course, we will select a focal area and some key associated movements; be it turns, jumps, adage, turnout or flexibility. We will delve into the details and slowly breakdown and practice some of ballet's more challenging steps and learn how to execute them correctly. The centre exercises provide the opportunity to piece together these new movements into longer and more complex combinations; embedding them into our muscle memory and enhancing our ballet knowledge and terminology. Pre-pointe and pointe exercises are also incorporated into the final section of class each week.
The class is designed to challenge you, whilst also providing a safe space to ask questions and receive feedback and corrections. Our goal is to support dancers in executing Intermediate and Advanced level choreography and with technical skill, artistry and ease!Read Less
This 8 week course consists of a weekly 1.5 hour class on Wednesday evenings between 6.30 and 8pm. The course starts on Wednesday 6th April and concludes on Wednesday 25th May.
The weekly class is structured as follows:
6.30-7.15pm: Arrive and warm up with an Intermediate level ballet barre.
7.15 - 7.45pm: Complete centre work including port de bras, adage, centre practice, petit and grande allegro. We use our time in the centre to breakdown and practice our focal steps in isolation and then in combinations and choreography.
7.45 - 8pm: Pointe work (pointe shoes are optional - all exercises can also be done in regular ballet shoes and are great for strengthening feet and ankles).
