Improvers 1 | Improvers 2 | Improver general
The Improver Levels progress from the Beginner Levels and cover more complex elements of Ballet including pirouettes and more allegro with a greater sense of movement in each class to challenge technically, whilst encouraging artistic development.
Improvers 1 (formerly named Pre-Improvers) is for those who have competently completed the Level 3 Beginner's stage and are ready to learn more of the Ballet vocabulary exploring more complex movements such as frappe', entrechat quatre and changement battu, more challenging adage in the centre while polishing technique and greater use of epaulement and building more fluidity. It is followed by Beginners Pointe as an extra. Handouts and videos are provided.
Optional Extra: Beginner's Pointe
Improvers 2 (formerly named Improvers 1) is for those who have gained sufficient skill, technique and strength to learn more advanced steps and combinations including brise's, entrechat trois, entrechat cinq grand rond de jambe, fouette' of adage, penche', fouette' rond de jambe en tournant and grand jete' en tournant. Handouts and videos provided.
Improver General* is for those who have attended Improvers 1 & 2 and are confident and competent with all of its material. Classes will be taught with a more open class feel with particular attention to dance quality and polish.
