Ballet dancers begin their day at the barre, and so should you! Using a barre for support we will learn traditional ballet exercises that will increase strength and endurance while also improving balance and coordination. Simple choreography will be taught so each student will feel the joy of dancing and be encouraged to express themselves creatively through the movements. Level 1, perfect for beginners and those wanting to dance at a slower pace, will spend the entire class at the barre. Level 2 is more advanced and will finish each class in the centre dancing without the aid of the barre. Whichever class you attend be prepared to feel lighter, stronger and more graceful when leaving. Whether you want to try ballet for the first time, return to class after years off, learn proper technique to apply to your Pilates barre class, or work on balance, this is the class for you!
