8 Week Course

Saturdays 12.30 - 2pm at City Sport

Adult Beginners Ballet Bootcamp

Are you an adult dancer who wants to get back to fundamentals of basic ballet technique?

Do you want to improve your muscle tone, flexibility, posture and balance?

Are you looking for a class that will help you focus intensively on ballet basics over the summer season?

This 8 week bootcamp will give you the core fundamental technique you need to progress into classical or contemporary beginners classes. Working at a slow and intense pace you will learn the anatomically correct way to achieve all the most important ballet positions and movements. Using repetition and simplicity, this course will prepare your body to instantly engage the right muscles so you feel confident when you learn new choreography sequences.

In the course you will work on:

- Hip mobility in parallel, 1st, and 5th positions

- Core strength and how to engage your abs and glutes for the ballet "lift*

- Posture in your spine and neck for confidence and a healthy back

- Correct anatomical terminology

- Exercises at the barre and in the centre

- Long muscle tone in the legs and feet for beautiful leg lines

- Overall strength and control in major positions and movements including arabesque, retire/pirouette position, attitude derriere, a la seconde and efface

Learn the basic positions and progression you need to develop confidence in ballet training, even if you are out of shape or haven't trained consistently for a long time.

Bring: Towel, water bottle, comfortable fitted layers (leggings/gym shorts/leotards/tights) you can sweat and stretch in, flat ballet shoes if available or cotton socks if not

If you have any pre-existing injuries, please inform the tutor before the start of class.
