Introduction to Ballet
This 8-week course introduces students to the basic positions of the arms and legs, and works on foundational steps that are used in exercises in a standard ballet class setting. Expect detailed explanations of how to engage the various muscle groups to initiate movement in a class setting that encourages you to discover how your body moves.
Suitable for students who have attended our Introduction to Ballet course, or are looking for a class to go back to basics with. These classes focus on working with movement vocabulary that is used in a standard ballet class setting. Classes are set on a per term basis to allow students to track their progress before moving on to higher levels.
Ballet (Level 1)
Level 1 classes are tailored for students who have prior ballet training, and follow a free-work structure that includes Barre, Centre, and Allegro each week.
Progressing Ballet Technique
Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) was designed to train muscle memory and to promote key muscle activation to achieve the best training one can receive. This class is not only suitable for ballet dancers, but is also a great conditioning programme for athletes or anyone who wants to work on understanding the mechanics of the body better.
Contemporary dance breaks away from traditional ballet lines and encourages one to move and express more freely.
Introduction to Contemporary
This 8-week course introduces students to movements that are commonly used in our COREography Contemporary classes. Students will be encouraged to explore how their bodies move through short improvisation segments, while learning basic elements of floor work, spinal articulation, and weight-shift which are then incorporated into short movement sequences.
