This open level ballet class for adults extends the dancer with its musicality and technical but lighthearted approach to advanced ballet technique. It's suitable for those who have done 6 or more years of ballet and are revisiting the form for enjoyment and fitness...
Feedback from one of Mary-Jane's students:
"When I started your classes it had been 20 years since I was last in a ballet class and much of my relationship with dance (ballet in particular) was steeped in feelings of failure and never being good enough. Since joining your intermediate class two years ago I have fallen back in love with ballet. I feel like I'm dancing the best I have in my life - I'm sure aspects of my strength, technique and flexibility were better when I was a teenager but I feel like I've never loved it as much as I do now and what a difference that makes to how you allow yourself to dance! The other dancers in your class are friendly, welcoming and fun to learn with - we laugh at our mistakes and push each other to keep trying. Age and rustiness are not an issue and your gentle encouragement and correction is super valuable. I really love your exercises and choreography and look forward to Tuesday night every week." Lara
