10 day intensive online course with My Ballet Coach
Daily 1hr30 classes from 11-12:30am, starting with a ballet class and stretch, then alternating each day with a conditioning and stretch class from the 21st August until the 30th. Times shown are in BST.
All you need is a device that can connect to Zoom, a chair or countertop to hold on to (if you don't have a barre), some comfortable clothes and a clear space. If you can do star jumps in the space without hitting anything, it's probably big enough!
Not able to make some of the classes? No problem! You will receive recordings of all lessons the following day, so you can complete the class at your convenience. Camera-shy? Don't worry, only Kate will be recorded.
A full ballet class with both barre and centre work, structured to suit your level, followed by a long stretch.
Pilates-inspired workouts with some pre-pointe work (foot & ankle strengthening) and a new stretch routine.
All online classes will be recorded (featuring just Kate) and links to the recordings will be made available in case you miss any.
Every class will be followed by a chat to allow students to ask any questions they might have about their training or to seek advice or tips from Kate.
A certificate of achievement will be sent to students upon request after completing their course.
After training at both the Birmingham Royal Ballet School and the Ecole Superieure de Danse in France, Kate has worked professionally as a ballet dancer and teacher for over 10 years, performing with The English National Ballet and Ballet Zurich, among others. She is passionate about providing a more accessible and affordable training platform for adult dancers and is the proud director of My Ballet Coach. Kate has helped hundreds of students achieve their goals over the last few years and is currently developing a Reduced Mobility course for disabled dancers.
Trilingual in English, French and Spanish, Kate will gladly translate any linguistic queries you might have during the course.
The Improver/Intermediate course is structured to provide dancers who are more experienced, but who are looking to enhance their skills, clean up their technique and who are looking to move up to the next level.
By the end of the course, you will have learnt a comprehensive barre, combining a range of different steps and playing with different musical accents and dynamics. In the centre we will have covered port de bras, adage, a combination of linking steps (pas de bourré, chassé, temps lié etc), pirouettes from 5th and from 4th en dehors and en dedans, sountenus, consecutive piqué turns, chaînés, petit allegro and allegro, plus optional pre-pointe exercises for those looking to start pointe work within the next year.
The stretches will build in difficulty over the course and the workouts will combine core strength exercises along with that day's theme (pelvic floors, glutes, lower/upper back, arms, abs etc).
