Tomorrow September begins, and ballet classes at URC will shortly be resuming…
The schedule will follow the normal pattern of classes, starting next week as follows:
Thursdays: 10.00-11.30am Advanced, 11.30am-12.00pm Optional pointework from 6th September
Saturdays: 10.00-11.15am Adult Beginners, 11.30am-1.00pm Intermediate/Advanced from 8th September
Mondays: 4.15-5.30pm Adult Beginners, 5.45-7.15pm Intermediate from 10th September
Classes will continue without a half-term break till early/mid December, final class date to be confirmed. I will of course let you know if there are any changes to this schedule or cancellations.
Class prices remain the same: £10 per class with the 10th class free for regular attenders.
Students attending Adult Beginners pay £8 per class with the 10th class free; there is also a student term card of 8 classes for £60 for those attending any of the Intermediate or Advanced classes.
A note about pointework: this additional half hour session has been piloted over the summer, and it seems a good idea to continue it through this term to enable people to build their strength and confidence in this advanced technique. There is an additional charge of £3 for those attending the Thursday class who would like to stay on for this session. If you wish to work on pointe I advise that you should be doing at least three ballet classes a week to ensure you have sufficient strength and experience. Those with experience but who have not yet worked on pointe are very welcome to do the session and explore the material on the demi-pointe by way of introduction.
You can find further information about all the classes on the Classes page.
