Upcoming Master Classes
Artistry and musicality in classical ballet
A unique master class exploring the importance of artistry and musicality in class and performance, with an emphasis on how musicality can transform simple exercises, help master more complicated steps and how both a better use of music and a sense of story-telling create a overall more professional aesthetic to your dancing. You will also be given tips on how to respond instinctively to the music in order to evoke character and quality which is the very essence of classical ballet, as well as how the different eras of art, culture and music affected ballet and the characters portrayed on the stage.
Not to be missed! Suitable for all levels.

“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.”
Gemma Ellis, Digital Manager at Channel 5
