Ballet is the perfect discipline to develop posture, alignment, strength, flexibility, coordination and grace.
If you are new to Ballet then our classes are perfect for you. These classes are also suitable for those who have some prior experience.
Our classes provide a supportive and encouraging environment, covering the basic ballet principles.
The most important thing about ballet clothes is that you are comfortable and free to move. Form fitting or loose, breathable clothing is key. Layers are also important if you feel the cold, you can always remove layers during class if you need to.
Ballet focuses on lines of the body and shapes made by the limbs in space. In a ballet class the teacher will need to be able to see the lines of the body in order to help you find the correct posture and positions. It is also helpful for you to be able to see the shapes you are making.
If you have any old or current injuries, or areas of the body that are susceptible to strain, then extra areas of warmth, such as leg or ankle warmers are recommended.
Traditionally, dancers take class in ballet shoes made of soft leather, canvas or satin. If you are new to ballet then socks are perfectly acceptable.
We recommend you visit your local dance wear shop where they can help you select the right shoe for your needs.
Most of all, when it comes to what to wear on your feet in a ballet class, you should feel happy in what you are wearing so that you are not distracted by uncomfortable shoes that rub.
