If you are unsure which level suits you best, you are very welcome to try out several classes - many of our dancers attend a range of levels each week, to consolidate technique and push themselves to learn new steps.
Beginner Designed for those with very little or no experience of ballet. Never danced before? Or maybe you gave up when you were five? This class is for you. Come and enjoy the inclusivity of our club and join us in spreading the idea that anyone can dance.
Improvers For those who have had a taste of ballet and wish to further develop their technique. This class extends the skills taught in Elementary classes and introduces some more challenging exercises.
Beginning Pointe For those who are new to pointe, this class will focus on developing the strength necessary for pointe work. Important: If you have never studied pointe work before, please attend this class in your flat shoes before purchasing pointe shoes. For your health and safety, it is necessary for the teacher to assess your readiness for pointe work.
Intermediate For those who generally understands the structure and basic vocabulary of a typical ballet class. This class is taken at a faster pace, designed to improve your ballet knowledge, technique, musicality and expressiveness.
Intermediate Pointe This class is for those who have developed the strength required for pointe and are looking to progress in the centre.
Inter-advanced Designed to bridge the gap between intermediate and advanced classes and to give dancers at both levels an extra class each week.
Advanced Taken at a fast pace, the advanced class teaches more complex technique and especially emphasises musicality, artistry, and developing your own sense of style. It is suitable for those with considerable previous training, general proficiency in ballet vocabulary, and, most importantly, a genuine desire to learn and work towards a higher level of ballet performance.
Pas De Deux Pas De Deux is dancing with a partner. It is for levels intermediate and above for Girls. No prior ballet experience is required for Boys.
