About Ballet without Barres
Ballet without Barres provides high quality, fun filled, introductory ballet workshops and ballet classes for beginners: those who've never had lessons, or had lessons many years ago but feel too intimated to be thrown "in at the deep end" in open classes.
We aim to lay the foundation of ballet to inspire and set people up to pursue regular classes without feeling intimidated.
Whether you've always wanted to try ballet, or learnt as a child but have never had the courage to go back, we provide a fun, safe and supportive environment to gain a thorough grounding in ballet enabling you to continue with regular classes.
• Ballet should be inclusive: open to everybody, of any age.
• Ballet class does not need to result in performance or a professional career: it can be an end in itself
• Ballet can be started at any time in life and is adaptable enough to accommodate people of all ages and abilities
• Ballet should be enjoyable but safe: it is not about getting perfect technique or executing multiple pirouettes, it is about dancing, staying fit and being challenged cognitively.
Ballet without Barres is run by Ketta & Jane. They both have a bbodance Level 5 Diploma in Dance Teaching and are qualified First Aiders.
