TRAINING
The lesson starts with a warm up which contains various bar exercises, followed by piroutte and jump exercises. There is time for various short inspiring combinations in the middle of the hall or on the diagonal at the end of the lesson. The lesson will close with stretching exercises to improve the students’ suppleness.

HEALTH
Ballet dance is often underestimated as a work out, but you use almost all of your muscles intensively when you dance. Ballet is extra intensive because you use all of your belly-, glutes- and leg muscles in every movement. These muscles are trained even more during jump exercises. Furthermore, ballet is all about flexibility. Much attention is given to this facet during the lesson. Ballet is excellent for your general health and muscle development.

LEVEL
During the lesson there will be the opportunity to explain particular techniques and muscle use.
