Ballet Taster Classes

Ballet Taster Classes

Ballet, as well as being both a beautiful and a highly technical dance, is also great fun and a perfect way to keep yourself fit and in shape. Come and experience Ballet in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

If you are a complete beginner who has always fancied trying a ballet class but not sure if it will be for you, take one of our Ballet Taster Classes.  You’ll get a flavour of what ballet is about before you sign up for our longer course.

Ballet Taster Classes Content

Skills Explored:

  • Understand posture and awareness of your body in space. 
  • Develop basic co-ordination of arms / feet / head.
  • Learn basic combination of steps
  • Barre exercises and stretches including learning each exercise name and meaning

This taster's the perfect way to make sure Ballet is definitely for you - and if it is, City Academy is the place to do it.

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
