General Ballet - Teen & Adult Beginners

General ballet is an unset ballet class recommended for older teenagers and adults who have never danced before, or who did a small amount of dance when they were younger and wish to get back into it.

General Ballet - Teen & Adult Beginners

The class constitutes free work, starting off with a warm up, barre work, centre practise and finishing with more complex allegro (jump) combinations. 

General Ballet is a friendly group, and we always welcome new faces. Beginners are very welcome, men and women of any age. Under 18’s who wish to transfer to an RAD Graded syllabus class at some point can be assessed in this class and then placed in the most suitable grade for their age and ability.

The class is a term fee for under 18’s to encourage commitment to attend each week, and it also aids the student purse as it works out slightly cheaper. For adults with a busy schedule we offer pay as you go, so there’s no need to book in advance. Simply turn up, put £6 cash in the tin and join in. We also have an adult loyalty card; please ask your teacher for one in class. There is no set uniform for General Ballet although some of our teens do like to purchase the RAD approved uniform, whilst others feel more comfortable in tight fitting t shirt and leggings or gym wear. We do recommend you purchase ballet shoes if you know you will be attending regularly as it can be quite hard to turn or jump bare foot.
