Evening

Join us for class at the spectacular West London School of Dance ballet studio, for an evening of inspiring movement and work towards learning a famous variation. These classes are mixed level and open to all - those completely new to ballet and those with prior knowledge and experience of ballet. Together we will work towards learning famous repertoire from iconic and classical ballets. The class divides into two so everybody has a chance to work at a level suited to their own needs, whilst having the chance to learn from and enjoy dancing with those around them. We want ballet to be accessible and fun, because of this our classes have a friendly and supportive atmosphere, we laugh together when we get things wrong and encourage each other when we get it right!

We focus on one variation every four weeks, giving students enough time to develop skill, technique and artistry. You will learn ballet terminology and steps, but we also have a strong focus on individual artistry and expression. We help you to understand the stories behind the movement, to get into character and to connect with the audience.

Note: Class suitable for those completely new to ballet, those with some ballet experience, those who danced as children and improver and intermediate students (pointe shoes welcome).

Upcoming variations include:

01st, 08th, 15th and 29th April: Odalisque from Le Corsaire

06th, 13th, 20th and 27th of May: Odette from Swan Lake

08th, 15th, 22nd and 29th July: Queen of the Dryads from Don Quixote

05th, 12th, 19th and 26th August: Paqita's 4th Variation

About your host, London Ballet Classes

Gurdeep is passionate about helping more people access the benefits of dance and movement, no matter their age or experience. She started her own ballet journey at age 19, in a small, drop-in beginner class and eventually went on to complete all ballet grades and undertake vocational work. Gurdeep is currently studying for her Advanced 1 RAD exam and will shortly commence her Teacher Training.

Gurdeep's love for ballet has led her on a journey of assisting ballet classes for over 5 years and assisting with inclusive dance programmes, including SLIDE and Icandance. She is 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!

When Gurdeep was learning she found it hard to find drop-in classes that really nurtured adults and developed technique in the same way as children’s classes or pre-professional training programmes did. She was lucky to find a studio who was willing to enter her into exams but a lot of her learning was also done alone, studying the body, muscles and the best ways to improve. She loves helping other people realise they can achieve so much with their bodies and inviting them to enjoy the beauty of moving to music. It is certainly possible to learn as an adult, to progress and most importantly to enjoy yourself. Everything she has learned she is passionate about sharing. Having started ballet as an adult beginner, she can recall the difficulty of learning terminology, steps and understanding. It is this that helps her to connect with students and explain things in simple and related ways.

Walking into a ballet class was the best gift Gurdeep gave herself, trying something new will develop your self-esteem and confidence and bring you joy.
