About your host, Angelina Jandolo Dance
Angelina Jandolo Dance offer weekly ballet and tap lessons for adults in Greenwich, Dulwich and Shoreditch. Beginner and intermediate levels are currently available as well as a dedicated pointes class.
Each of our friendly and enthusiastic ballet teachers have trained professionally in internationally renowned conservatoires going on to perform at national and international levels. The classes are syllabus-free, but every year we offer the opportunity to take exams through the globally-recognised IDTA for those who wish.
We keep the lessons at a sustained pace – you’ll get a workout as well as learning ballet techniques. Classes are built to help students progress, but are challenging too: both complete beginners and those with existing experience will learn and grow as dancers while keeping fit and social.
What to wear for the first class: if you do not have dance wear we recommend to wear something comfortable to move in (such as legging/shorts and a t-shirt) and to have a pair of socks.We recommend not wearing anything too baggy, to allow the teacher to see and correct the posture if necessary.We would recommend wearing ballet shoes if you wish to carry on with a regular practice. We sell affordable dancewear, which can be ordered from the teachers.To bring a bottle of water is also recommended.
This class is open to anyone but is directed at students with no or very little ballet experience.
