Ballet dancers take class every day of their working lives - and sometimes beyond ! Class is a structured work out where all the major muscles are warmed up ready for the day ahead. For professional dancers it's a time to ease out the stiffness of last night's performance, or to strengthen an area perhaps weakened by an injury.
English National Ballet are offering two opportunities this weekend to join them in class, on Saturday 25th July 11am-1pm at Markova House.
First there is a Taster class, where no experience is necessary, for those aged 7-11 yrs.
Then there is an Improver class, where some dance experience is required. This is for those aged 14 yrs +.
In both classes the cost is £8 and there are 25 places available in each.
Additionally, if you are not in London this weekend, English National Ballet are offering places at their Summer School at the Mayflower Theatre, Southampton, from 12th - 14th August. You can join classes and workshops, choosing from Ballet Creative, Learn the Steps, Twilight Ballet or Ballet Masterclass with expert teachers and dancers of the Company.
