The aim of these classes is to provide an opportunity for participants to develop the skill and confidence to dance with ease. Dates: Tuesdays, 15 & 29 May, 5, 12, 19 and 26 June. (no class 22 May) Celina's class holds a dynamic structure: Classes include an introduction to floor-work, partner-work, and improvisation. With space to develop mind/body coordination as well as inner listening, students will be comfortable as first-time dancers or those coming back to movement after a long break. Each session builds on a movement sequence which is mastered by the end of the 6 week period. Celina facilitates a relaxing yet exciting environment where the body's natural intuition and playfulness will be explored and appreciated.

Ballet for Adults - Improvers
Thu 17 May '18 to Thu 21 Jun '18

This class develops good posture, balance, flexibility, coordination, spatial awareness and rhythm inherent both to Ballet as well as to a healthy body and mind. Ballet is not only a beautiful dance discipline, it also promotes the development of mental concentration and memory recall, together with body toning, strengthening and elongation of the muscular structure. Participants will learn basic ballet positions and patterns in a traditional structured class, consisting of a warm up, barre and centre exercises, and finally a relaxing warm down routine, incorporating improvised movements to music.
