Hello future students!

Ballet is a beautiful art form that I encourage you to experience for yourself! It is fundamental style of dance that allows the dancer to be able to follow on easily into various other styles of dance.

Each section of this course is broken down into short videos to demonstrate the movements and allow you to follow along easily.

The first section we learn the basic positions of the hands and feet. The second section demonstrates ballet practice at the Barre. The third section is an introduction to centre practice, including pirouettes. The fourth section jumps and curtsee are the focal points.

This course has been carefully designed to enable you to be able to feel confident any time you walk into the ballet studio, whether that be local, or abroad.

As ballet was created in France, the names for each movement are French, I will translate and go over these with you, so that you can clearly understand the meanings and pronunciation.

All that is left now for you to do is sign up today! I am excited to help you to become the ballet dancer that you desire to be!

Classical ballet is the “queen of dances.” When it first emerged, it  was the sole privilege of the royal family to practise ballet. It is  characterized by elegance, ethereal motion and hard work. It develops  special muscles, employs the stretching techniques of yoga, and develops  coordination to an exceptional extent. Through a system of techniques, I help you to get  closer to yourself.

We practise perseverance, concentration,  self-discipline approached through the body, as well as body awareness.  While in ballet the form is significant, it is only of secondary  importance in my classes. What really matters is what is happening  within you. In classical ballet, there is a fixed order and system of  ballet movements, which anyone can learn. The best part of this form of  dance is that we reach to the sky , going higher and higher to achieve our dreams.


Classical ballet for beginners. We suggest this cours for all those practioner who have had attend a ballet class before or/and took our Online Ballet Basics cours!

Welcome to Pre-Ballet! Children across the world love to dance. Parents and caregivers should take advantage of this enjoyment as dance is also a great way to help a growing child.

Preschool children particularly learn through physical and sensory experiences and dance helps them develop a wider understanding and skill of physical, emotional and social development.

In these classes we focus on movement, balance, music appreciation, imagination and the very basics of formal ballet for 2-5 year old girls and boys. The intention of these classes are to introduce the basics of ballet in many fun exercises that will take them on imaginative journeys with castles, butterflies, dragons, sea creatures and more.

This course will help children:

  1. Gain a sense of discipline through learning new positions.

  2. Will learn to follow instructions.

  3. Learn co-ordination, balance, flexibility, how to control their bodies in motion and the development of your child's gross and fine motor skills.

  4. Gain strength, stamina, muscle-tone and cardiovascular health.

  5. Be active and get exercise.

  6. Learn about themselves - their own strengths, their creativity, their uniqueness.

Once a child begins ballet at an early age, they are not only learning a valued art form but also getting training for life that is ahead of them.

We hope you will enjoy the stories and adventures as much as we did making them.
