About Ballet Fusion
This class combines the basics of ballet technique with the gracefulness of movement in general, to create a fusion workout for the complete beginner or someone returning to ballet after a long break.
The ballet fusion class builds from an easy dance warmup, 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 coordination to music they need.
From there the class will have developed the strength to move onto the combination of ballet movements which are unsupported in the middle of the studio. These movements demonstrate the gracefulness of the dance form (which can promote grace and wellbeing in daytoday 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.
Throughout the ballet fusion classes you will have increased flexibility, an improved core strength, posture and balance along with enhanced coordination. You will also see your muscular strength improve and inturn your endurance levels increase.
