DAY & MINI BALLET RETREATS

En Avant Ballet regularly holds Day and Mini Ballet Retreats in London and cities all over Europe.

These unique events allow you the exciting opportunity to experience what life is like as a ballet dancer through our carefully structured schedule of ballet classes, repertoire workshops and rehearsals, ballet conditioning exercises, stretching sessions and small performances for invited friends and family members. We also regularly have special guest dancers and teachers from The Royal Ballet and other major ballet companies.

What a wonderful way to spend a weekend…After a break of 25 years since regular classes, this was quite the baptism of fire to get back into ballet. I loved every single moment. Thank you Karis for such a fun weekend. I’m looking forward to the next one!”

“Who needs weights when you can lift women in ballet class? Seriously, probably one of the best workouts of my life. At the beginning it was all jokes and games, but by the end my muscles were done. Thank you Karis for organising such an amazing event with two members of the Royal Ballet.
