NEW ADULT CLASS

Adult Ballet Fitness. Saturdays 9.30 - 10.30

A very popular class. This is a fusion of Pilates, ballet movements and gentle cardio. Ladies have found this to be a winning formula for toning the bottom, thighs and abdominals. The muscles are toned and elongated, like a dancer. A perfect time to get into shape for that wedding dress or bikini! No ballet experience needed, suitable for all. More classes starting evenings so please get in touch for more information

NEW CHILDREN'S CLASSES

Ballet/creative Dance for preschoolers age 3 - 4 Saturdays 10.45 - 11.30

Nicky encourages the children to use their imagination and creativity in a fun, structured way, introducing the basics of ballet. Contact me and come along for a free taster.

Ballet/ creative Dance and yoga age 3-4 Mondays 1.45 - 2.30

The first half of the lesson led by Anna will focus on ballet/creative dance, with the second half  on yoga, specifically for this age group. A lovely combination. Try a free taster

Hiphop/Street age 6 - 10 Saturdays 1.00 - 2.00 

A fun, active class with Agata, exploring various different styles. Come for a free trial

 

 

 

Grand Opening 27th June 2015

It was a great honour to have David Bintley, Artistic Director of Birmingham Royal Ballet formally open my studios here in Digbeth. It was a great evening, and the guests were treated to a short performance  from 6 of the girls with their "Tambourine" dance, a solo danced beautifully by 8 yr old Shani, and the Pas de deux from Elite Syncopations -- a very special treat for everyone and generously performed by BRB dancers Yvette Knight and Brandon Lawrence in-between the matinee and evening show of Sylvia at the Birmingham Hippodrome.

Have a look at the review in this months Dancing Times. Pictures to come to the gallery soon.
