Immerse yourself in our five-day Ballet Intensive Course and learn classical ballet, ballet history and terminology and excerpts from famous ballets. You will also gain experience of being 'en Pointe'.
You will begin each day at our ballet school by building your strength, stamina and flexibility with Pilates based exercises and stretches, before a ballet barre and centre practice. This will help you learn ballet terminology and hone your technique. Additional ballet classes of 'Pointe' work, specific focus classes and a contemporary class, to experience how classical ballet has influenced other dance forms, will all be part of your day. Afternoon sessions will be spent learning Classical Ballet repertory such as Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty and Giselle.
We suggest that those looking to take this Intensive Ballet Course have completed a Beginners Ballet Class or have relevant experience.
