If you miss the days of plies and pirouette, Dancecorp’s adult ballet classes in Brisbane might be the answer.
One of our biggest points of difference is that we don’t run a term schedule, meaning newcomers are welcome to join any week!
So, if you’re anything like us – and tend to avoid the gym – ballet is a great way to stay active.
Our adult classes are deliberately designed to be fun and social, yet still offer the discipline and formality that makes ballet different to other dance styles.
In these classes there is a great focus on learning basic techniques (for beginners). But they are also suitable for those who may have done ballet in the past and are looking to develop their technique further.
In this blog we cover everything you need to know about our Adult Ballet classes and how you can join us!
Benefits of Ballet for Adults
- Fun way to exercise and move your body
- Builds muscle and strength (ballet uses just about every muscle in the body at the same time!)
- Condition and tone the body without the monotony of getting on a treadmill or lifting weights
- Ballet is an art where you can always grow, learn and develop your technique.
Adult Ballet Classes: What to Expect
Here at Dancecorp we prefer to keep class sizes to a maximum of eight people, so pre-booking is required.
Attendees learn exercises, techniques and sequences of choreography. We concentrate on teaching all elements of a great dance together, including arm and foot movements, positions and steps, musicality, performance and passion.
Ballet Class Rundown
Every class follows a classic ballet structure.
- We begin at the barre for warm up and technique
- We then head into centre practise (exercises carried out in the centre of the room),
- And finally, we finish with a small dance or “enchantment” and a Curtsey/Bow “Reverence” to end the class (this is a formal way to end any ballet class, performance or show.)
When are Adult Ballet classes held?
Our adult ballet class is an hour long and takes place on Wednesday evenings from 7.15pm-8.15pm.
We are eager to expand our Dance Active program and would love to add a second Ballet class on a Saturday afternoon. Tell your friends and family!
Music | Adult Ballet
We use a variety of classical music but with a twist.
What to wear or bring?
- Ballet shoes and loose comfortable clothing should be worn to class
- A towel
- Water bottle to help you stay hydrated!
What Experience Is Required for Ballet Classes
These classes are designed as a beginner introduction to ballet for adults.
We do cater to a range of different abilities; however, the beauty of ballet is even simple steps can be challenging when working on technique.
While the dances are kept simple and repetitive during class, our instructor can always keep an eye out and provide advanced options for those seeking a challenge.
This class is available to anyone over the age of 18 and best suited to people under 60. However, this is on a case-by-case basis and may differ depending on each person’s ability and/or past/current injuries.
At Dancecorp Dance Studios, we don’t run our classes on a term basis, which means new dancers can start at any time, and we don’t have big gaps between classes when there are holidays.
