Why try BALLET?

  • You've always loved to dance and want to get back into it. 
  • Strengthen and tone your entire body in a fun and elegant way.
  • Improve balance, coordination, and flexibility
  • Improve posture and body awareness. 
  • Gain confidence and learn a new skill!


What to expect in a normal BALLET session?

Phase 1: Barre - Warm-up and body and lengthen the muscles using the ballet barre, ready for center work. 
Phase 2: Centre - a variety of poses and movements completed in the center of the room. A challenge for both your muscles and your balance. 
Phase 3: Allegro - This phase of the class is faster and includes a bit of jumping!
Phase 4: Choreography - Over the 5 weeks, you will learn a short and simple routine, to put your new skills to the test.
Phase 5: Stretching - Spend time stretching and relaxing the muscles.


What to wear?

  • Comfortable workout clothing, that allows the body to move freely. 
  • Socks or ballet shoes. Something that will allow your feet to slide over the carpet in the Zen Zone. 
  • You do not need to wear the traditional ballet uniform (leotard, tights, etc).
