Simply Ballet was originally created for adults who wanted to learn ballet. Simple.
It’s never too late to start learning, start moving to beautiful music, to challenging yourself, and find the fulfillment you always dreamed of.
Founded in 2011, Simply Ballet came about when a group of friends struggled to find a ballet class where they felt at home. Adult classes seemed to be an afterthought for dance schools, and were not taken seriously by most. What they wanted were classes where they could steadily progress their technique, learn with purpose, and feel like they were achieving.
Simply Ballet was created to fill this void. Since then, Simply Ballet has grown to offer a variety of levels and courses to suit all kinds of learners, however – we still have a special spot for adult ballet. Carefully constructed classes give you the opportunity to learn ballet at your pace, without feeling like a fish out of water. A variety of levels means as your journey progresses you can continue moving and achieving.
Why are our Adult Ballet classes different?
In fact in every way Simply Ballet tries to be there for you as an adult learner.
Having a goal and a sense of achievement as your ballet journey progresses is a big part of our philosophy and as such, Examinations and Class Awards can be undertaken through the Royal Academy of Dance. Through this experience, many adult students have found a sense of accomplishment and self-satisfaction in their studies of Classical Ballet.
Adults are also able to participate in the Discovering Repertoire programme.
Designed to take you step-by-step from your first plié – (that’s what we call a knee bend) to a level where you are comfortable in a basic ballet class, this course will cover the in’s and out’s of ballet posture, basic steps, and why everyone is talking in French…
