Class description:

These classes are designed to expand your knowledge and performance skills, helping to focus and refine one's artistry. You will work further on technique and learning the dynamics of movement phrasing. These classes are also suitable for participants with experience who are returning to dance. Classes comprise of a variety of exercises at the barre, enabling students to warm muscles and mobilise joints whilst refining and developing technique. The class continues in the centre with port de bras, adagio, pirouettes and jumps in preparation for allegros and travelling sequences and combinations across the floor.
