What you will do
3 hour workshop
Join this workshop for a morning of inspiring movement and work towards learning famous repertoire from the iconic ballet Coppelia! Coppelia is the magical story of a doll who comes to life and a joyful celebration, it performed internationally each year and is famous for its vibrant and enchanting choreography.
This is a unique opportunity for dancers who would like to learn what it’s like to rehearse and perform as part of a corps de ballet. We will be learning the iconic "Swanhilda and Friends" from Coppelia Act I.
The workshop will include:
- 30 minutes of barre work and warm up
- 2 hours Repertoire, corps de ballet and Swanhilda's entry
- 30 minutes performing - as solos, duets or groups (with the option to be filmed/ take individual or group photographs)
We will be joined on the day by the incredible dance photographer, Aidan CK. He will be snapping shots throughout the workshop and is available to take individual and group shots at the end! These will be shared with attendees through our social media/website following the workshop.
This is a unique opportunity to take a beautiful snap of you and your fellow dancers in action or a photo of you gracefully posing in the beautiful Place studios! All included in the ticket price!
[Please note: This is optional, attendees choose if they would like to be in the photographs)
What to bring:

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!
The venue is fully equipped with showers and changing facilities. There is also a water fountain. It is advisable to bring a drink and light snack on the day. Note: The studio has sprung floors (suitable for pointe work)
