As a teacher I am interested to create both a technical and enjoyable ballet class. The class begins at the barre with a warm-up and exercise combinations that focus on musicality and preparation of the body for centre work. Moving into centre, we practice travelling dance phrases including adagio, port de bras, pirouettes, jumps, finishing with a grand allegro phrase and a cooling-down sequence. Are you looking for a fun and challenging ballet class where you can express yourself, take constant feedback and increase your physical fitness? Then this class is for you! Looking forward to share with you some ballet stories and tips!
