Join Royal Academy of Dance teacher and Silver Swans expert practitioner Sarah Platt as she brings her motivational ballet classes directly to you at home. This is the second in a series of classes aimed at the over 55s, giving you the knowledge to unleash your inner dancer, with new sequences to learn and remember each week. Following the same warm up as Lesson 1, this time we learn tendus and battements glisse.
Proven to ensure a complete mind and body workout by improving mobility, posture, co-ordination and energy levels, these exercises will help to keep you mentally and physically active – even if the kitchen counter or the bathroom sink is serving as a makeshift barre.
Before participating, please consider if you have enough clear space, that is free of obstacles, and suitable to work in safely; that the floor surface is suitable to work on; and that you have footwear appropriate for that surface. As we are working remotely, we are unable to give you personal feedback.
Any child participating must have a suitable parent/guardian present, or have their consent to participate in this activity. Given the nature of these activities, you participate at your own risk and should only do those activities that you consider safe for your own body and the space that you are working in.
Please warm up and cool down appropriately (before and after the session) and do feel free to stop and/or modify activities as necessary.
