Upcoming Master Classes
'Tutus and Tinsel' - Christmas Ballet Class!
Join us for a very special 2.5 hour Christmas themed master class.
Due to the overwhelming feedback from our 'Class, then a Glass' summer event, we have extended the length of a regular ballet class in order to meet your every growing enthusiasm for more!
This is your time to tackle any challenging technical feats, spend more time practicing what you feel needs improvement, learn new movements as well as advancing on from steps you already enjoy! We will be focusing on memory of enchainments, artistry, posture and control while dancing in the center, pirouettes, petit and grand allegro before finishing off class with a much need En Avant Ballet signature stretch sequence. All to beautiful festive music from our renowned pianist Matthew Gregory.
Then to toast the wonderful Christmas season, we will go for a glass of champagne (or whatever tipple is your preference) in nearby Kings Cross!

“HUGE THANK YOU for the FABULOUS Pas De Deux master class. It was an amazing experience and I have always wanted to try a Fish Dive – now I have done it! There is still life in the old boy yet!”
Ray Wheaton, former Page of Chambers to HM The Queen
“It’s a privilege as an adult to be given the opportunity to learn from such talented professional dancers. Nicol Edmonds gave a master class in the truest sense of the word: it was a positive challenge for the mind and body to take familiar movements and try new combinations at a professional pace – all in keeping with En Avant Ballet’s uniquely fun and friendly environment.”
