All Ballet Boost courses are designed to nurture the next generation of professional dancers, providing them with the artistry, musicality and technical skill to help them shine in this crowded industry. Our Easter Course aims to enrich each student’s thinking and experience beyond that provided by their usual training syllabus. We will cover Ballet, Virtuosity, Pointe work, strength training, Allegro coaching, Contemporary, Repertoire and body conditioning / pilates / floor barre. Students will also learn about anatomy, the importance of taking care of their own physicality, and the affects different psychological barriers can have on performance.
