What you will do
1.5 hour class
Join us at The Place, world famous dance studios, for an evening of inspiring movement and work towards learning a famous variation. These classes aim to help those with experience and knowledge of ballet work towards learning famous repertoire and variations from iconic classical ballets.
The classes focus on one variation every four weeks, giving students the time to develop skill, technique and artistry. We teach you the variation, exactly as the professionals do it, so you can challenge yourself and dance to your hearts content! However, for those struggling, we always have a simplified version of the steps, so don’t be intimidated and have a go!
You will learn ballet terminology and steps, but equally important, we will focus on your individual artistry, expression and style. We want you to come to class and dance with us, not just train with us!
So, if you have always wanted to learn some repertoire, at a level suited to your own needs, now is your chance!
Each variation will be taught over the course of 4 weeks, however, you are welcome to join a single session as a drop in if you prefer.

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!
