These classes will gradually develop your technique and understanding as the week progresses, featuring live piano accompaniment to add to your enjoyment. An informal studio recording will take place on the last day for you to record the repertoire piece you have been working on throughout the week. This can then be shared post event with friends and family.

Also on offer is an open level Pilates class which you can book in combination with a ballet and repertoire class or as a stand alone class. Pilates classes will compliment the ballet classes and support you with exercises designed to build core strength, improve posture and flexibility and maintain your overall well-being.

Bookings for this course have now closed, please email participate@rad.org.uk if you have any queries.
