Course description

Dance - Ballet For Grown Ups - Beginners


Ballet is not just for kids! Everyone can benefit from the improved strength, body awareness and grace that regular ballet practice brings. Whether you are a total beginner wanting to learn a new dance form, or you did Ballet as a child and want to get back into it, this is an ideal course for anyone wishing to learn or re-learn Ballet from a basic level.

What will we cover?

The aim of this course is to learn simple ballet exercises to strengthen the muscles, build a strong core, and to help develop grace, flexibility and co-ordination.

You will learn basic ballet steps, moves and travelling sequences.
You will practise both barre work and floor work.
You may learn a choreographed dance routine.

Our courses build on past learning, week by week, to develop new abilities. You will find your own progress much easier if you attend every lesson.

Who is this course for? Is there anything I need to know before joining?

Complete Beginners and those with fewer than six months’ experience of ballet lessons.
May also be suitable for former-ballet dance students wishing to return to their practice.

As our courses are taught in English, please contact us if you have any concerns about your level of English.

What do I need to bring to the first class? Will there be any extra costs?

Wear close-fitting clothing so the teacher can see the lines of your body/legs to check posture and alignment, nothing too baggy.
Bare feet are an option for this course. Your feet need to be visible so that the teacher can ensure you are working them correctly and for your safety ballet shoes are recommended. If you wish to purchase ballet shoes, please ask the tutor, so that they can advise you on suitable brands and suppliers. NO trainers/heavy foot wear please.
Drinking water.
Pen and reading glasses if you use them.

No additional costs.
However, learners may wish to invest in appropriate footwear

What can I do when I finish the course?

The Beginners course runs for a full academic year, and you are encouraged to re-enrol in the following term, from September to January to April.

For the following academic year, an Improvers course could be arranged, subject to demand, or there may be an All Abilities course, that would meet the needs of improvers of varying levels of skill and experience.

Alternatively, we have other dance courses which may complement this course and also other fitness courses. Take a look at our brochure, or online, to see what there is on offer.
