Open Level Ballet will be delivered as a live class in Studio 1.
Learn how the graceful, formalised tradition of ballet can help improve your posture. This class includes floor exercises, stretches and jumps. While at times ballet can be physically demanding, it also helps to build strength and stamina.
An adult class for those with some experience of ballet, from beginner to advanced level.
This class is led by Sophie Taylor

Practicing at Home
Please make sure you have plenty of space to practice safely and comfortably. Take a rest or a water break any time you need one. If you are practicing yoga or pilates please back out of any postures that bring you pain or discomfort, take a rest and come back to the class when you are ready. Your teacher will give you any additional instructions or advice at the start of your Zoom.
We have new processes and measures in place to keep you safe. Please read our Studio Guidelines before booking.

What to Wear
Leggings and t-shirts or other comfortable clothes are perfect for most classes. Some classes recommend specific dance shoes, but otherwise bare feet is fine. Check with us in advance if you are unsure.
