We run various adult classes for a range of abilities. Some classes are more general and others are more ability specific. Below is a list of the classes we offer with information regarding the level of the classes.


Class Description


Gentle Adult Ballet

This class takes the classical ballet technique and works through gentle exercises encouraging strength in the upper back, core, legs, ankles and feet. As a result this improves balance, deportment, flexibility and confidence. All this is achieved whilst keeping the body safe, socialising and enjoying the freedom of the movements to classical ballet music.


This class is a great starting point for complete beginners before you move on to some of the more rigorous classes.


General Adult Ballet

This class follows the more traditional setting of a ballet class; a gentle warmup, barre and finishing with some centre work. It is suitable for those who have some basic knowledge of ballet.


Intermediate Adult Ballet

This class also follows the traditional setting of a ballet class and includes some slightly more complex choreography. Therefore, it is suitable for those who have been attending ballet classes for a few years (either as an adult or child).


Ballet Conditioning

This class follows conditioning exercises that focus on strength in the upper back, core, legs and ankles improving balance, deportment and flexibility. As a stand alone class this will tone and shape the body and improve fitness. Those attending other adult ballet classes will find this class improves your ballet technique giving you more control in your movements.


No previous ballet experience is necessary for this class.


Adult Tap 
Following a traditional style of American tap, this class is suitable for all abilities and is a fantastic way to exercise both your body and mind; it challenges the brain-to-muscle connection and through regular aerobic training that incorporates some type of dance at least once a week, this can help maximise your brain function.

Attire
You are welcome to wear anything you like for these classes as long as you can move freely and safely. Some people like to wear leggings and t shirts/sports tops and others like to wear leotards, tights and skirts according to the style of dance. It really depends on what you’re comfortable in. It is best to wear some sort of dance shoe for ballet; ballet shoes work well however, if you have any problems with your feet then dance trainers might be more comfortable (and allow room for innersoles etc if required). Tap shoes are necessary for the tap classes but a hard shoe for your trial class will work well.

Trial Class
We offer a free trial class to anyone wanting to start classes at the school. Please email us to book yourself a trial class: sheilapricedance@yahoo.co.uk
