Ballet Classes - Beginners

Ballet Classes - Beginners

Ballet is the perfect discipline to develop posture, alignment, strength, flexibility, coordination and grace.

If you are new to Ballet then our Ballet Classes for Beginners are the perfect way to start your journey. These ballet lessons are also suitable for those of you seeking to refresh your skills.

Our Beginners lessons provide a fun introduction to Ballet. They will cover basic ballet principles in a supportive environment. Ballet terminology will be explained and demystified. The classes will cover barre work, centre practice, allegro (jumps), pirouettes (turns) and some choreographed phrases.

The course is available in two different formats: weekly evening sessions taken over a number of weeks, or a one full-day intensive introduction to ballet.

The classes are held in central London dance studios and are suitable for absolute beginners.

BALLET CLASSES FOR BEGINNERS CONTENT

Exact course content may differ depending on the duration of the course, your individual needs and those of the group. However, topics covered will generally include:

  • Establish basic ballet vocabulary and the purpose of each exercise
  • Develop strength, flexibility and better posture
  • Improve coordination
  • Broaden awareness of the body in space
  • Put techniques into practice by mastering simple choreographic phrases

You will be given friendly feedback and support from your tutor throughout the course.

Not sure what to wear? Don't worry! We've got you covered with our definitive guide on what to wear to a ballet class.
