Classical Ballet training disciplines the body with good posture, develops strength, balance, natural co-ordination; as well as stimulating the mind. With regular classes it improves stamina and flexibility; training safer and stronger bodies for dancing. This class is designed for all abilities and genders. In the first few weeks the teacher will evaluate your progress and adapt the sessions to best fit the group. If you have done Ballet grades before please let the teacher know.

“Dancing is like breathing” you cannot do one without the other.
I am so grateful to be able to do what I love best. Working with students and seeing their growth through self expression.
Becoming more confident and soaring like eagles.
I am a longstanding Cecchetti and Imperial Modern Teacher of the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing London, having taught for 40 years running my own academy in South Africa.
I am grateful to be able to still impart “The Method” as its called, to future generations of dancers and eternally grateful to Maestro
Cecchetti for his gift to us.
I have now relocated to the United Kingdom and presently assisting Mrs Whitfield at her Demeric School of Dance in Farnham and have been tutoring the students which culminated in the year end examinations and
the “Switching on of the Christmas Lights” in Farnham.
