Learn the basics of ballet technique in a clear and well-structured way to enable you to train safely, with joy and confidence.

Laying the groundwork in ballet is like learning the alphabet in order to learn a new language, and in this absolute beginner ballet course, you are going to learn how to 'spell', 'read', and 'write' ballet, though it may take some time to become fluid.
You will not only be shown what to do but how to do each exercise. Position and movements will be explained in great detail so that you do not feel lost or overwhelmed. Instead, I am trying my best to help to grasp concepts, structures, and patterns of ballet technique that you can continue to apply as you are going to progress in your training.
Each class will be recorded and made available to you for 5 days so you can revisit the lessons or catch up if you are cannot attend live.

This course is suitable for students:
with no prior experience
who feel they have gaps in their understanding
lack confidence in basic movements
want to improve their technique by gaining a more solid foundation
