Integrated with some pilates and yoga exercises this class also concentrates on increasing core strength and flexibility.
No knowledge of ballet necessary, and suitable for anyone that wants to tone, strengthen and stretch.
"Ballet Fusion is an excellent work-out on specific parts of the body and it’s fun blending ballet and pilates. I was a complete novice but the difference I feel in my flexibility and muscle tone is remarkable." Alison V

"Starting ballet lessons as an absolute beginner in January 2019, at the recommendation of a medical professional after being diagnosed with a debilitating physical condition - and having to make health adjustments- I had no idea what to expect! By the end of the first lesson, the only way to describe how I felt is as if a spark ignited inside me, which has continued to shine bright over the last eight months as my passion for ballet had grown deeper by the week." Francesca DS
