  Classical Ballet (Beginners)

An increasingly popular way of keeping fit, classical ballet is a highly focused and fundamental form of dance with a vast amount of physical and mental benefits including full body toning, increased stamina and flexibility, core strengthening, correcting posture and alignment, improving memory, deportment and grace! 

Beginner level ballet classes with former Royal Ballet trained dancer Karis Scarlette are challenging and friendly, a great way to enhance your physique, stimulate your mind and build your self confidence.

Classical Ballet (Professional)

Highly musical and with an emphasis on style, upper body and strength, Karis’s advanced/ professional classes will enable you to explore your artistry, improve your technique, stamina and confidence. Renowned for creating an inspiring and positive atmosphere, classes with Karis are a great place to work on your own goals in a safe and inclusive environment. Having worked with many incredible teachers, artists and choreographers, Karis will pass on her extensive knowledge of classical ballet, music and performance through her nearly 30 year experience in dance. 

This class will be accompanied by pianist Matthew Gregory.
