“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!”

11th June 2017 – Danceworks, London

“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.
