This hour-long class is aimed at girls and boys aged 8-18. Starting with an aerobic workout and finishing with stretching for flexibility and meditation to calm the mind, the main focus of this class is on Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT), a revolutionary programme that uses fit balls and resistance bands to help train muscle memory. A one-off investment is needed in a fit ball, fitness band and mat which students own and bring to class each week (we will provide an electronic pump so the balls can be deflated between lessons!)
No prior experience is needed.

Laura Andrews RAD CBTS RTS is School Principal and Ballet Teacher at Bath School of Dance. Laura has been a dancer for more than 35 years. She started dancing aged 3 at the Parkewood School of Dance in Southampton and trained for 15 years under the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) syllabus, reaching vocational grade Advanced. One of Laura’s proudest achievements was securing a place at the Central School of Ballet in London. She chose an academic path, completing a Business degree at the University of Bath followed by a 17-year career in event management where she was able to use her instinctive organisation skills in running large and high-profile events; a background that has proved valuable in running the School. Laura continued to dance throughout these years, rediscovering her love of dance as an adult dancer, then making the natural progression from dancer to dance teacher.
