🌟 Studio Class Reviews
“Fab class, great studio, great teachers.”
– Alison, on Intermediate Ballet, after so many years “I’ve lost count!”
“The instructor is friendly – classes are relaxed. He is fun, but still firm. I have a ball at the class! And I get a workout… what’s not to like?!”

The health benefits of ballet
Studies have shown that participating in dance brings many physical, cognitive and emotional health benefits.
Ballet improves your posture, stamina and flexibility; strengthens your core muscles; and gives you an aerobic, mind and body workout.
In this time of global crisis, finding ways to reduce your stress levels is vital. Dance can have a positive impact on your mental health and wellbeing and provide a welcome distraction by fully engaging both body and mind.
It’s also important to find ways you can exercise inside your home during social distancing. Join Tracy and meet ballet enthusiasts from Edinburgh and beyond on a Tuesday evening – join our online ballet classes via the Facebook group.
