Exercising in winter is a struggle — even for the most actively inclined among us. If the mere thought of shivering through your usual gym routine is making you want to crawl back into bed, we've got the perfect solution for your pain.
Australia's leading dance company, The Australian Ballet, has announced the second series of adult ballet classes kicking off from Monday, May 17. Running until the tail-end of June, everyone from beginner to advanced dancers are invited to pirouette into the state-of-the-art Primrose Potter Ballet Centre in Southbank.
Classes run for 75 minutes and are led by current and former dancers of The Australian Ballet — Franco Leo and Jasmin Dwyer. Those with extra left feet, or very little prior ballet experience, are encouraged to join beginner classes which allows dancers to progress while building on posture, coordination and strength. Intermediate classes are a space to work on technique, while advanced classes focus on incorporating musicality and developing lyricism into your ballet.
All classes are soundtracked by live piano, so you'll feel every bit the ballerina in the studio. Tickets are available as a package ($160 for the full series), but you can also dip your toes into the world of ballet with a casual pass ($33 per class).
