Adult Ballet (beginners) Monday 6-7pm with Jess Gamlin

Have you always dreamed of dancing like Darcy Bussell? Do you often dance around the kitchen, imagining being on stage at the Royal Opera House? Well, I cannot guarantee we will all make it to Darcy’s level but I can promise you will feel graceful, light as a feather and free after this class. Learn the basics of ballet technique. Strengthen the feet, legs, core and arms in this wonderful full body workout designed to build flexibility and poise. We will start with barre exercises to build a strong foundation and then gradually move into the centre for some elegant adagios.

Ballet shoes are advised but not essential. Socks will do. No need to bring your tutu (unless you would like) just grab some comfy clothes and let’s meet at the barre.

Please head to the Dance section to book.
