Always wanted to do ballet but feel nervous to start ballet classes because you think it's too hard or you are too old?

Our beginner ballet classes are the best way to begin a new challenge with like-minded people that will inspire, energise and motivate you.

In our structured programs, you will learn ballet exercises at the barre and in the centre to improve posture, balance, flexibility, strength, stamina, and coordination in a friendly and safe environment.

You will discover the sensation of being graceful and elegant, the enjoyment of dancing to a great playlist, while getting the benefit of working and toning your whole body!

Our beginner ballet lessons are suitable for those with little or no previous experience in ballet.

Class Description

The class is ideal for you whether you have no experience or are returning after a long while of practice.

Throughout the beginners ballet classes you will learn to understand body alignment and position, will develop and tone your upper and lower body muscles and improve balance and breathing.
