FAQS

Which class level is right for me?

If you’ve never danced before or are just starting out, our Monday Beginners class are a great starting point.

If you’re more familiar with ballet, our Thursday Intermediate class will help build your confidence.

For master classes, workshops, and retreats, we’ll always specify the level of ballet experience required.

What if I’ve never danced before?

Now’s a great time to start! Our Monday beginners class has a supportive environment for complete beginners, and will teach you the fundamentals –  posture, feet and leg positions, and port de bras (movement of the arms). These building blocks will be reinforced throughout the class as you begin to learn enchainments (movement combinations).

What should I wear?

Anything you can freely and safely move in. Socks are fine for your feet initially. If you think you’ll be coming to class regularly, we recommend purchasing ballet shoes (~£10-20).

How do I join a class?

The easiest way is to to email us so we can guide you to the right class/time. All classes are open to drop in.

Is ballet for me?

Yes! Our beginners classes and ballet retreats are designed for anyone and everyone, at every life stage. No previous dance experience is necessary either – just bring your enthusiasm, your willingness to work hard, and a good sense of humour!
