Grande Jeté, Plié, Pirouette. Ballet is for everybody, whatever your age or ability, as long as you enjoy moving to music. You don’t need to be a pro to join in.

Appreciated worldwide, wherever you are in the world you can find a ballet class.

Why is it good for me?

Ballet can help to improve your posture, balance, flexibility, core strength, leg strength, and physical coordination.

The less obvious benefits are to your memory, as you memorise short sequences during the class, and to your musical sense. There is really no such thing as ‘ballet music’, because teachers can use any kind of music, and they do!

How much does it cost?

Cost varies between schools and classes. Find one near you and ask about their rates.

What equipment do I need?

Comfortable clothes and a pair of soft ballet shoes which cost around £10.
