Our Intermediate Ballet Classes are suitable for those who have completed our Ballet Improvers 2 course or equivalent elsewhere, and have a solid classical technique. Your ballet technique will be taken to the next level by finding space in the body to let go of tension and fully enjoy the experience of dancing gracefully.
Time at the barre will be spent examining the dynamic and technique of the exercises in preparation for the remainder of the class. Centre practice will focus on stationary, turning and travelling exercises moving on to jumps, beats and grande allegro combinations. Throughout each ballet class you will concentrate on personal expression and develop the ability to dance alone and in unison.
You will strengthen your classical ballet technique, learn more complex sequences and steps, and gain confidence to dance in smaller groups with the opportunity for solos.
Exact course content may differ depending on the duration of the course, your individual needs and those of the group collectively. However, topics covered will generally include:
We recommend bringing a hair tie to keep long hair back, layered clothing and soft ballet shoes. Friendly feedback and support will be given throughout the course.
Our tutor was fantastic. His teaching approach was perfect.
Why not brush up on the History of Ballet to deepen your understanding of the dance!
City Academy ballet tutor, Georgia Heighway, writes about why taking up ballet in your spare time could just be the best thing you ever do. Ballet has a great number of physical, mental and social benefits.
