Adult Ballet

Adult Ballet

Course Details

Adult Ballet will be taught by Susan Tyne. This class is for all ballerinas with or without previous knowledge or experience. If you’re over 18 or you have received a letter from the Queen on your 100th birthday, love ballet and want to find your inner Pavlova, Fonteyn or Nureyev, then this is the class for you.

Whatever your age or ability you are welcome. Ballet will improve your posture, balance, coordination and mobility while strengthening muscles you never knew you had. I am sure you will leave each class feeling taller, lighter and brighter in mind and body. All this and more will be possible while listening and working with your body.

In class, we will work through a warm up Barre. Explore Ports du Bras, Centre Practice, Adage and for those of you who want to, Allegro. If you are new to ballet, please do not be baffled or put off by the terminology, it will all become clear in class.
