PILATES HIIT (NEW!)
This class is an effective combination of Pilates and HIIT (high intensity interval training) inspired exercises. The aim of the class is to strengthen, tone and lengthen your muscles while challenging core stability and getting the heart rate up with interval training.
Pilates is a method of exercise which uses low-impact exercises to challenge muscular strength, endurance and flexibility. It is a full body workout which challenges core stability while doing so, building better posture, as well as a more balanced and healthy body.
This class is a 45-minute midday Pilates workout that is a perfect break if you have been sitting at a desk for hours, or if you struggle to make morning/evening class times.
DEEP STRETCH & RELAXATION (NEW!)
This class is perfect if you are needing a little “TLC” or “me-time”. The atmosphere is set with candles, fairy lights and relaxing music for you to completely de-stress and unwind while still mobilising and stretching your body. Perhaps you have less energy than normal on a particular day, or having a tough week – slowing down is always a good idea so this class is for you!
Barre Fit is a hugely beneficial combination of strengthening exercises as well as stretching at a ballet “barre” in a slow and controlled manner, along with cardio intervals. The exercises in the class draw from my experience as a professional dancer, ballet teacher and fitness instructor. It is important to note that although the class draws a lot from ballet principles, there is no previous dance experience necessary and the class is accessible to all levels.
The Dance Fit class is a combination of fun dance cardio as well as dance-inspired exercises to strengthen, tone and sculpt your entire body. The class also challenges co-ordination by teaching you different steps and routines. It is loads of fun and full of laughs – the perfect mid-week workout!
BALLET (ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS)
This class is for people who have absolutely no experience in Classical Ballet and would like to lay a solid foundation of understanding the principles of this beautiful art form. In addition, one will improve core strength, posture, muscle tone, flexibility and balance while doing so. This class is also for anyone who would like to get back into dancing after an extended break, or for those who would like to refine their technique.
This class is for people who have done ballet for a minimum of 1 year and would like to apply the basic principles of Classical Ballet to attempt slightly more challenging exercises. The class includes barre, centre practice, adage, pirouettes and allegro; challenging both mind and body for an invigorating dance experience!
The Intermediate Ballet class is for those who have a solid foundation in Classical Ballet principles and would like to challenge co-ordination and technique together. The class moves through a full barre, as well as centre work, repertoire and flexibility training. This class is suitable for slightly more advanced dancers, or adult beginners with a minimum of 2-3 years experience.
This dance class is for people who would like to learn some of the basics of modern, contemporary and jazz dance. The class includes exercises for technique as well as learning routines and choreography. Not all the styles are covered in every class, and so each month of classes is slightly different. If you would like to learn more of just one style, please contact the studio for private classes with one of the instructors.
