Thank you to BBC Radio Nottingham for coming to our Beginners Adult Ballet Class on Friday 3rd March. It was wonderful to have you guys come over and see what we do at Lady Bay Ballet. It was also very interesting to see all the hard work that goes into making a piece for radio and not only the pure skill that is involved but vision and attention to detail. It was a fantastic experience and a great way to spread the word about what we do, and most importantly at Lady Bay Ballet it is never too late to take ballet class! - Audio recording of the piece will be on here very soon!  Thank you once again.

 

Lady Bay Ballet is now on Twitter @ladybayballet & you can now view our LBB page and join our Lady Bay Ballet group on Facebook.

We are looking for women and men that have had some ballet or dance experience in the past. If you are interested in joining this class or would like to come watch before beginning please email me ladybayballet@sky.com

Level-
If you have had some ballet or dance experience in the past or recently this class will be suitable for you. This ballet class is of a very similar level to Wednesdays evening class. I would recommend this ballet class for anyone who wishes to pursue classical ballet in a more advanced setting and quicker paced class, however I do recommend coming along and trying the class to see how you feel. All of our classes have a range of abilities.

THE INDEPENDENT- CALLED BACK TO THE BARRE

    Tuesday 14th July 2015, Secrion 2 /Life- by Siobhan Norton

Ballet- which most girls abandon at school- is the latest fitness craze. says Siobhan Norton, who discovers why growing numbers are using plies and pirouettes to work out

'The nostalgia is undeniable, but what really rocked ballet back into the mainstream was the release of the film Black Swan in 2010 what really fired our imagination was the power-pink and grey marl wardrobe and the slender frames of stars Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis. Sports brands raced to release ballet-inspired looks and we all reasoned with ourselves that it was once more acceptable to don legwarmers. The health club perennial, Zumba, was overtaken by ballet-inspired classes'

'There are people out there who don't want to go for a run or spinning- but a ballet class on a Sunday afternoon is much more fun and sociable'

'Rein maintains that you don't have to be swan-like to see the benefits of barre' 'There are modifications for every exercise so you are still working the same muscle groups but to your anatomy's ability. There is really no plateau, you can always bring it to a deeper level because you're working with your own body weight. It leaves you strong and toned'.
