How do I book a place on the classes?
Booking is only available via the website – we are not able to take bookings over the telephone. Be aware that the classes are very popular and tend to sell-out quite quickly. Places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Make sure you sign-up to the mailing list.
Can I book for more than one class?
Yes. You can book for as many classes as you wish.
How many people will be in the class?
The number of participants is limited to 30 per class, in order to ensure the classes are safe and enjoyable for all.
What is the age range of participants?
Classes are for anyone aged over 18; there is no upper age limit. The Youth Ballet Class is for ages 13 to 17.
What should I wear?
You can wear whatever clothing you are happy dancing in. Participants generally wear a leotard/t-shirt with leggings/tights with soft canvas/leather ballet shoes or bare feet. You must ensure you can move freely. We ask participants to remove all jewellery, long hair is tied back and trainers or socks are not worn.
Can I do pointe work?
No, pointe shoes or soft blocks may not be worn to any classes.
Am I guaranteed a place for next term if I apply this term?
No. To make the system fair you need to apply each term in order to secure your place as these classes are in high demand. Please ensure your name is on the Evening Class email mailing list to receive updates and notification of when bookings are open.
