Adult Ballet Improver drop in

Our weekly improver drop in class will work on your classical technique skills, whilst building strength, stamina and coordination. As a step up from our adult courses, this drop in class will introduce new steps and vocabulary. We encourage dancers not yet at an improver level to take our beginner level courses and feel confident in their beginner technique before advancing to this class.

Adult Ballet Intermediate drop in

Our weekly intermediate drop in will be at a quicker pace than our courses and will cover more challenging steps including turns, adage and travelling at an intermediate level. We encourage dancers not yet at an intermediate level to take our beginner level courses and/or our improver drop in class and feel confident in their technique before advancing to this class.
