Welcome, I’m Jo. Let me tell you why I created this course …
Ballet is a beautiful way to exercise your body, centre your mind, and express yourself, and there is no reason why it should just be for children and teenagers.
While I offer courses for absolute beginners at my dance studio, Move Through Life, I know that many adults who’d love to learn ballet can’t get to one of my classes. Perhaps my studio is too far away from you, or the time of the class doesn’t suit, or you’re keen to get started at a time when I’m not starting a new intro course in the studio. I also know that many so-called beginner ballet classes are better suited to what I called experienced beginners, those who’ve been doing ballet for a few months and have learnt the basic movements and language.
So it seems like a no-brainer to me that being able to learn ballet online would mean more adults could start ballet, so that anyone who can’t get to my instudio classes can still take those first few steps on their journey as an adult dancer.
Being able to learn ballet online as an adult means you won’t make you feel self-conscious about your age, size, or lack of experience. You can do the course at home to build confidence before you go into a class with other people. You can learn at your own pace and fit it in around your schedule, practicing at a time and place that suits you.
After completing the course, you’ll be armed with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to go into a beginner ballet class and hold your own.
