We're bringing ballet to the Rec Centre! Our resident ballerina Zoe, will be leading authentic Adult Ballet classes each week in our Zen Zone. Whether you have done ballet in the past and want to restart, or you're a complete novice with no dance experience, this course will cater for you all!

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.

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.
