Adult Ballet Classes in Brighton and Rottingdean
Ballet is an excellent form of exercise.

Adult ballet classes develop balance and promote emotional & physical well being. Each muscle group is engaged in movement and the brain is used to aid fluid movement, interpret music and memorise steps.

Classical music used in class is both invigorating and relaxing. Ballet is an all win form of exercise and a chance to make new friends.

Men and Women can start adult ballet classes at any age. It can be worrying for some people who think they will be unable to keep up with the class. However, they soon realise how much fun it is and such a great way to exercise. I hope to see you in class soon.

We welcome new pupils at any time during the year. Our classes are for adults of all abilities.
