Ballet School Schedule


Each day will begin by building your strength, stamina and flexibility with some Pilates based exercises and stretches, followed by a ballet barre and some center practice, learning ballet terminology and honing your technique. Additional 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 course. Afternoon sessions will be learning Classical Ballet repertory such as Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty and Giselle.

DAY ONE

In-depth introduction to Classical Ballet, breaking down each exercise on and off the barre. There will be a focus on strength, flexibility and muscle mobility, and there will be an introduction to pointe work. You will learn about the historical background of the chosen repertory for days one and two, followed by a repertory class.

DAY TWO

On your second day you will learn additional barre and center exercises, focusing on balance, posture and improved coordination. There will be a specific focus on pirouettes and your introduction to pointe work will continue. The afternoon will offer a brief anatomy discussion followed by a repertory class.

DAY THREE

Expanding on what you have learnt, the morning will start with a ballet class. You will continue to work on pirouettes and introduction to 'en pointe'. Before your repertory class you will look at the historical background of the ballet excerpts you will learn over the next two days. 

DAY FOUR

Starting with a  morning ballet class and continuation of pointe work, day four will also include an introduction to contemporary dance, providing an insight into alternate dance styles with roots in Classical Ballet. The afternoon will consist of injury prevention talk and repertory class.

DAY FIVE

For your final day you will start with a morning ballet class and continue to work with 'en pointe', before reviewing the repertory learnt throughout the course. In the afternoon there will be an informal showing and a chance for you and invited guests to participate in a Q&A session.
