The theme of this year's Easter Ballet Course is La Bayadère.
We will be studying the mesmerising 'Entrance of the Shades' (watch from 2:30min) that is aimed mainly at the beginner level students, and with the more advanced students, I am going to work on the
Gamzatti variation of act II.

Below you find the PDFs with the steps written out and the videos tutorials so you can prepare for the course in advance. Once I received your payment, I will send you the password for the video tutorials.

To help you progress and to monitor your improvement, we will film on Saturday and at the end of  the course on Monday. 

To ensure your body recovers from the intensity of the course, we will spend the last hour on Monday with a deep stretch routine.


If you have questions or you are unsure whether this is the right course for you, please do not hesitate to contact me so we can discuss your situation.
