Experience Opportunity

Ballet Classes - Intermediate

Our Intermediate Ballet Classes are suitable for those who have completed our Ballet Improvers 2 course or equivalent elsewhere, and have a solid classical technique. Your ballet technique will be taken to the next level by finding space in the body to let go of tension and fully enjoy the experience of dancing gracefully.

Time at the barre will be spent examining the dynamic and technique of the exercises in preparation for the remainder of the class. Centre practice will focus on stationary, turning and travelling exercises moving on to jumps, beats and grande allegro combinations. Throughout each ballet class you will concentrate on personal expression and develop the ability to dance alone and in unison.

You will strengthen your classical ballet technique, learn more complex sequences and steps, and gain confidence to dance in smaller groups with the opportunity for solos.

Exact course content may differ depending on the duration of the course, your individual needs and those of the group collectively. However, topics covered will generally include:

- Advanced technique at the barre, centre, allegro and turns
- Complex movement combinations (enchainements)
- A focus on personal expression
- Increased stamina, flexibility, musicality and coordination
- A deeper understanding of Classical Ballet
We recommend bringing a hair tie to keep long hair back, layered clothing and soft ballet shoes. Friendly feedback and support will be given throughout the course.
