Frequently asked questions
How do I pay for classes & workshops?
You can book and pay for classes & workshops online, or you can pay cash on the day. However, class sizes are limited to 20, so if lots of people book in advance, we may have to turn people away on the day. Best to book online to guarantee a spot!
What happens in a workshop?
At a workshop you will learn to perform a simple ballet routine ("enchainement") inspired by one of the great classical ballets. You will also learn the structure of a ballet lesson and execute simple barre and centre exercises. You will also understand a variety of ballet terminology and the foundation techniques.

A 4 hour workshop is a long time - will we be dancing all that time?
No! Don't worry!
What should I wear?
Do I need ballet shoes?
Does it matter if I have no ballet experience?
Absolutely not! Our workshops and classes are designed for total beginners, either as a one-off taster session or to provide a foundation to go on to take regular classes. It can also be just something different to do on an afternoon.
Is there an age limit?
Workshops and classes are designed for adults only, but there is no upper age limit.
