Adult ballet classes have increased in popularity over recent years, and for good reason. Ballet is an elegant classical form of dance, performed largely to classical music. Ballet is based upon strong and secure technique which also forms the basis of many other dance genres; it is a graceful art form with flowing and precise movements. Ballet also has its own vocabulary deriving from the French language which you will begin to learn during this course.
Learn the basic positions, arm lines and exercises as an introduction to the art of Ballet.
