This class combines the basics of ballet technique with the gracefulness of movement in general, to create a workout for the complete beginner or someone returning to ballet after a long break.
Through introducing the basic ballet steps to a non-dancer they will find this progressive class provides greater flexibility and improved muscle tone and posture.
The class builds from an easy dance warm-up, to the barre where the basics of the technique of ballet are established. The correct posture (a perfectly balanced line from head to pelvis, long neck and open chest) are stressed, as well as the inner strength the barre exercises require and the co-ordination to music the need. From there the class will have developed the strength to move onto the combination of ballet movements which are un-supported in the middle of the studio. These movements demonstrate the gracefulness of the dance form (which can promote grace and well-being in day-to-day life) and allows for personal interpretation of the movements which is often the most enjoyable element of ballet. The class finishes with stretching and abdominal strength building.
The class is open to people of all ages, but not advisable for during pregnancy or those with recurring injuries.
