Poetry Inspired Ballet for Muslim Girls
Ballet is a Classical Dance employing formalised steps that follow intricate choreographic movement patterns as a means of expressing emotion. Ballet encompasses mental focus, expression and physical excellence whilst engaging every aspect of the body, mind and soul. It's the perfect expression of Grace and Poise.
Our ballet classes provide an elegant approach to developing technical physical skills and artistry in a tranquil holistic manner. Our classes are accompanied by Poetry which provides a highly enriching, artistic and mindful experience. We aim to provide a supportive and inclusive space for our attendees to connect to the Mind, Body and Soul.
