This is a vigorous sumptuous ballet class drawing largely on Cecchetti ballet technique - training exercises for strength and coordination that have an innately lavish dance quality that is very satisfying for dancers


Class music comes from a range of blues,soul, rock and pop, electro and classical to emphasise the quality aimed for in the exercise.


Following an hour of barre and centre exercises attendees are welcome to stay to learn excerpts from Sleeping Beauty - both the classical Petipa choreography and more modern takes fusing ballet technique with contemporary influences.








"The Cecchetti work has given me strength, discipline and co-ordination. It wasn't until I got into the Royal Ballet Company that I realized how lucky I was to have had that training."

 - Darcy Bussell
