About

We start with warm-up exercises that include elements of yoga and floor-barre, through which we warm-up, stretch, breathe-through and prepare the body for bar exercises. Bar exercises are short combinations of ballet movements with which we train stability, flexibility and alignment of the body with gracefulness of ballet technique. Center, which is the next phase of the class, is done without support of the bar and same dance elements appear that spread through the space this time: diagonals with turns and jumps, short ballet compositions. We finish the class by stretching and slowing down. Ballet class is suitable for those with some dance knowledge and basic ballet knowledge.
