This class consists of barre exercises that focus on alignment, timing, port de bra and combination exercises. The centre work will include elementary steps and simple jumps and turns.
Although this is ballet, the class will be fun and the environment a relaxed, welcoming one (perfect for adults). The terminology and techniques are the same but emphasis is placed on enjoyment, comprehension, posture and gracefulness rather than perfect execution of the movements. Attire – anything you are comfortable in but fitting clothing is best if you’re comfortable with it. Ballet shoes suggested.
