BALLET YOGA FUSION
Borne out of Floor Barre - a low impact mat based exercise used by dancers to rehabilitate and avoid stress on the joints - this class tones and sculpts in the places that count!
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
You might well have heard of Silver Swans which has been devised by the Royal Academy of Dance to improve posture, coordination, mobility and energy levels.
"Research shows that 75% of the factors affecting quality of life and longevity are related to lifestyle, while only 25% are hereditary. This means that there’s no excuse for not getting more active whatever your age. And dance in particular, can play a vital role in ensuring a longer and better quality of life. Research also often puts dance ahead of other physical activities in the variety of health benefits that it brings. Ballet and dance are also very social activities and Silver Swans classes can be great places to meet new people with a passion and joy for life".
Classes cost £10/session. Bookings can either be made and paid for online or you can drop in and pay on the day (cash only).

"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."
