#Casual Dance Classes
Ages 16 years+
Ballet is an exquisite art form, that inspires creativity and musicality. It also is incredible for building strength, coordination and flexibility.
Our ballet classes are broken into four levels:
Foundations and Beyond - Ballet Foundations course graduates
Level 1 - Experienced Beginners
Level 2 - Intermediate
Level 3 - Advanced
More advanced levels move into developing your technique, co-ordination and rhythm through longer and more challenging sequences including adage, pirouettes and allegro combinations.
Contemporary Dance Classes
Contemporary dance blends the style of ballet and modern dance in a fun and creative class. We incorporate floor work and encourage you to try new things, getting you out of your comfort zone while developing skills, confidence and self-expression.
We offer two levels in our contemporary classes:
Open Contemporary – a perfect start for those wanting to explore contemporary dance for the first time.
Advanced Contemporary – suitable for more experienced dancers.
Allegro and Pirouette Technique
Practice and develop your classical ballet technique further with this class focused specifically on allegro and pirouettes. This class is suitable for dancers of all ages and abilities, and particularly for those who are wanting to improve on certain techniques.
