ADULT BALLET / REPERTOIRE CLASSES
ADULT BALLET CLASS
This class is suitable for anyone with basic dance experience/knowledge. Maybe you did Ballet when you were younger or have other dance experience....
As a slower pace genre of dance this class will be perfect for anyone wishing to do Ballet or Contemporary. Not only will you be learning all the techniques but at the same time working on strength and flexibility which is so important in having a healthy body for any age.
You do not have to be the next Darcy Bussell to enjoy ballet, everyone just works at their own level and benefits from this dance discipline at their own rate.
Ballet is such a versatile dance form that you can mix standards at the same time.
What is Discovering Repertoire?
The RAD have introduced a new dance programme, designed for any age above 12 years (including adults). They have brought to life set dances in the ballets like 'Sugar Plum Fairy' (Nutcracker) and 'Blue Bird' (Sleeping Beauty) that all students of any age can learn and build upon. Exams can be taken in stages for those that like a goal or adults can learn the famous dances from ballets such as 'Paquita', 'Giselle', 'Swan Lake', 'Coppelia' to name a few just for the pure enjoyment.
Another part of this class is Body conditioning which includes 'Pilates'. This is a great way to strengthen the body all over in a slow and subtle way and is studied by dancers worldwide because of its benefits.
Taught by a qualified RAD / ISTD Teacher.
"I have attended adult ballet for best part for 5 years. Every Monday I am encouraged to improve old skills and learn new ones, to be challenged and to have fun and a bit of a giggle. Chahna's classes are friendly, fun, professional and non-judgmental, no matter your level" - Katy D
My daughter’s enthusiasm for Chahna’s lessons eventually infected me! Despite a lifetime’s love of dance, I had never taken classes as a child and thought my moment had passed. However, with Chahna’s encouragement I eventually “bit the bullet” and joined an adult ballet class in my forties. If you are looking for a fresh fitness challenge – or simply a way to meet other, like-minded people and have fun – I cannot recommend Hertsmere Academy enough. - Sarah Strugnell
