These classes are highly recommended for students from 9 years of age (Grades 3 ,4 Ballet and Pre-Intermediate levels), to compliment their training. Each class is a body conditioning technique class designed to stretch, strengthen and balance the body. These classes target the deep postural muscles within the body through a series of exercises aimed at building muscle strength and rebalancing the body. Excellent for improving posture, strength and flexibility while aligning the body correctly, it also teaches coordination, concentration and control of the body.
The timetable is carefully planned each year to include several classes of stretch/conditioning/floor barre. A number of these precede classes that require the body to be warmed and supple therefore gaining the full benefit of the class.
Pilates /Floor Barre and/or Strengthening is compulsory for those students entering Ballet Exams from Intermediate Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced levels.
