At Lauren Haith School of Dance we pride ourselves in trying to be as inclusive as possible and as such we felt we should be offering a wide range of classes for adults! All of our adult classes are suitable for adults of all ages, genders and ability from complete beginners to those with experience.
**** Due to Current COVID-19 restrictions these classes are online ****
Please see our available courses below:
Adult Ballet - Wednesday - 7:00-8:00pm
Feel elegant and poised as you dance your way through class, starting at the barre then moving into the centre where you will learn short sequences that will then be built upon to create longer sequences and routines . Ballet is a great way to improve posture, flexibility, core strength and general fitness whilst enjoying the art form.
PBT- Progressing Ballet Technique - Wednesday 6:15-7:00pm
Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) is an innovative body-conditioning and strengthening program that has been designed to enhance students' technique by focussing on training the muscle memory required in each exercise in all forms of dance. PBT focuses on core strength, weight placement and alignment of the body with a gradual approach of carefully designed exercises and repetitions of these exercises that trigger their muscle memory. PBT is not only a program to improve technique in ballet dancers, it is now being appreciated and incorporated in training by all forms of dancers, athletes, physiotherapists and even footballers!
Adult Contemporary - Thursday - 6:30-7:30pm
Taking elements from Ballet, Jazz and Modern, Contemporary is an exciting and diverse dance style. Belinda’s contemporary class mainly pulls from Cunningham and Release techniques, whilst exploring a wide range of movement ideas, such as use of breath, fluidity in the body, gravity, momentum and finding efficiency whilst moving in and out of the floor. After exploring these technical principles which aid strength, flexibility and co-ordination through exercises, we finish the class by putting them into practice in a longer dance phrase combined with creative tasks.
