2 hour workshop
This February, London Ballet Classes hosts this one-off and very special Masterclass, a unique chance for Intermediate adult ballet students to learn from and dance with professional ballet dancer Isabela Coracy!
Spend your Saturday evening learning and dancing the beautiful First Solo from Swan Lake, Pas de Trois, Act 1. The Masterclass will kick-off with ballet barre, set to some of ballet's most beautiful and iconic classical music. As we gradually warm up and prepare for the class, Isabela will share some of her favourite warm-up routines and top tips to get the most out of your practice.
She will then teach the First Solo from Swan Lake, breaking down the choreography and helping dancers to execute the movements with both technical accuracy and artistry. The workshop is an opportunity to celebrate this incredible art form, gracefully combining intricate steps and movements to perform one of Swan Lake's most celebrated solos, set to Tchaikovsky's beautiful composition.

About your host, London Ballet Classes
London Ballet Classes helps adults access the benefits of dance and movement, no matter their age or experience. We are passionate about making ballet more accessible to adults who have always wanted to learn but never had the chance. It really is never too late!
We know how hard it is to find drop-in classes that really nurture adults and develop technique, skill and artistry in the same way as children’s classes or pre-professional training programmes. Our classes are specifically focused on introducing adults to professional repertoire taken from the most iconic classical ballets, instilling in you a deep appreciation for ballet as an art form, not just a sport. Our classes offer adults the opportunity to work on the same routine for several weeks, providing the time and support to better understand and execute movement, expressively and effectively.
We complement our regular teaching programme with an annual series of workshops, focusing on specific technique and problem areas in dance, ranging from turnout, extensions, jumps, turns, flexibility and coordination. Alongside this we regularly partner with high profile dance professionals who come in as gtuest teachers and artists. Whatever you are looking for we have something for you!
Our ethos is centred around making dance accessible, inclusive and fun. Please feel free to message us with any queries!
What to bring - Loose clothing - A water bottle (and small snack if you wish) - Ballet shoes (pointe shoes are optional) The studios are fully equipped with changing rooms and shower facilities.
