Upcoming Master Classes

Allegro Master Class 

The most exciting part of ballet class, a favourite of Karis's but often the most dreaded by adult dancers! 

Petit and grand allegro is the culmination of all your barre and centre work during your ballet class and the moment to really enjoy moving through the space with control and ease. During this Master Class you will learn the intricacies of footwork within petit allegro (small jumps), use of body weight and floor pressure to help build strength, accents, take off and landings as well as different ways of using the music can assist with artistry and movement dynamics. You will also be given strengthening exercises for your lower legs and feet, core and back in order to help you achieve your jumping goals! 

This Master Class is suitable for Improver/ Intermediate level adult dancers. 

 Sunday 2nd June

“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
