Ballett

from 7 years



Classical ballet trains correct body tension and posture - a valuable cornerstone for a dance career both classic and modern! Another great feature of these classes is that every lesson is accompanied by a pianist. Through a playful and fun introduction to the fundamentals, we learn the basic positions and body balance as well as ballet vocabulary ‘on the side’. With regular training, the difficulty level can then soon be increased. With enough diligence and a desire to train to a higher level, this also includes the learning of pointe work and the complete structure of the classical ballet. The courses are divided into two different age groups: 7-12 years and 13-18 years.

In Russia she worked for 5 years as a ballet dancer in the Volgograd State Opera and Ballet Theatre, at the same time gaining experience as a dance teacher.
