Ballet classes for adults
Develop grace and an agile body & mind
How ballet class makes a difference
Your posture will improve, which will make you look taller and slimmer, reduce stress and strain on your spine and other bones and joints.
Your mind will stay sharp as you get better at recognising and remembering patterns, improve focus, and exercise your memory.
You’ll reduce stress and worry as you take an hour out of your day to just be in the moment and calm your mind.
Develop long, lean and toned muscles in your legs and arms which have strength, endurance, and power, plus they’ll look great. Ballet arm movements help avoid or get rid of ‘chicken wings’ (upper arm flab).
Relieve tension and pain in your neck, shoulders and back by working out the kinks and knots developed by hunching over a computer all day, and developing core strength.
Avoid or minimise impact of chronic diseases associated with ageing like osteoporosis, arthritis, diabetes, heart disease by building bone mass, strengthening muscles that support your joints, building cardiovascular fitness, and maintaining a leaner body weight.
Improve confidence as you develop grace and the effortless way of moving that ballet dancers have.
Once you’ve done ballet class, it always feels like coming home when you go back to the barre!
A ballet class is a structured class that begins with a series of exercises at the barre to warm up and to strengthen feet and legs, loosen your hip joints, and develop coordination between arms, legs and head. It then progresses to the centre, where you practice arm movements, slow and sustained movements for balance and leg strength and height, turns, small jumps and larger travelling steps or steps of elevation.
You may think of a ballet class as an uptight affair, accompanied by classical piano music, but our classes are very informal and relaxed. Often the teacher will choose non-classical music, and there is plenty of laughter and friendliness.
Work at your own pace
We offer classes from beginners through to advanced. There is no pressure to get your legs high or to jump. Everyone is encouraged to work at their own pace and within their own physical abilities. So don’t worry if you have problems with your knees or ankles, or if you’ve lost the flexibility of your youth. Everything can be adjusted, and you can work up to the level you are comfortable with.
