Ballet Taster

Level 1

Ballet is a fantastic way to improve your posture, balance, muscle strength, and overall fitness. Taking ballet classes are also highly recommended if you want to improve your dancing ability in other styles like ballroom, Latin, belly dancing, samba etc. They will help you understand your body better, how to create beautiful lines and styling as well as having more control and expression when you are dancing.

Our Ballet Taster classes are intended for those with little or no experience in ballet who want to give it try before committing to a full course.

FAQs

  • What to wear in a Ballet class?

    Soft comfortable clothing, not too loose as the teacher needs to be able to see your legs and body alignment and correct where necessary.

    Suggested outfit can include leggings and a top of your choice. It is recommended to wear clothes that are not too loose as this would help to see better your body lines and execute the movements correctly.

    In terms of footwear, soft ballet shoes are most suitable. Please contact us if you need advice on where you can buy them from.

    Changing rooms are available for you to use before and after the class.
