INTRO TO BALLET - Taught by Director of Education, Christopher Hird

A new program specifically designed for adults who have always wanted to learn the basics of ballet. Over 5 weeks, students will discover the joy of dance through a progressive curriculum that blends the fundamentals of classical ballet technique along with conditioning and stretching. No experience necessary!

Week 1
The basics – good posture, correct placement, turnout and how to stretch.  Learn the first two positions of the feet and how to walk with elegance and poise.  Develop your understanding of ballet history and the music that inspires us all to dance.

Week 2
Discover the real ballet barre, the foundations of every ballet class.  Learn the third position of the feet and be introduced to the flowing movements of the arms called port de bras.

Week 3
Take the first steps in the middle of the studio – known as centre work.

Week 4
Discover how to jump with grace and learn the secrets of ballet turning.  Fourth position of the feet will also be added.
