WHEN DO YOU HOLD YOUR CLASSES THROUGH THE YEAR?

My evening classes run all year round with a brief break in August and at Christmas, and my day time classes follow school term times. I hold Ballet Workshops at weekends on various dates throughout the year and complete beginner ballet courses on an ad-hoc basis

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Please wear whatever you feel most comfortable and can easily move. Most of my regular dancers wear leggings and t-shirts. Ballet shoes are not required initially and socks or Pilates socks with grips on the bottom are fine. If you continue on a long-term basis, I recommend buying a pair of split sole canvas ballet shoes. Tutus and leg warmers are optional…!

WHERE CAN I BUY BALLET SHOE’S?

You can buy ballet shoes online or in any of the major dance shops in Covent Garden, London (Bloch, Capezio, Dancia International and Freed of London). I recommend getting a split sole canvas ballet shoe in your normal shoe size. Most will come with elastics pre-sown

WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO BALLET CLASS?

Please bring some extra layers so you can keep warm at the start and end of class and a large bottle of water. Upon returning to the Studio post lockdown it is advised that you make a Barre Sleeve to put over the barre where you stand, if using the windowsill as a barre please bring a small towel to act as a barrier, for more information contact sarah@balletrevival.co.uk. Please come to class ready changed, shoes should be left downstairs at the Studio and there are toilets available

WHAT DO I BRING TO BALLET BODY CONDITIONING?

Please have bare feet or Pilates socks with grips on the bottom, bring a towel, some layers to keep warm at the end of class and a large bottle of water

WHAT FACILITIES ARE AT THE PILATES WORKSHOP?

All of my classes are held in Studio 2, except my Tuesday morning class which is in Studio 1 at The Pilates Workshop. There are two toilets available. Shoes are left downstairs in the waiting area and there are coat hooks available. There are places outside the studio to lock up bikes as well. All bags and personal belongings are brought into the studio during class

IS THERE PARKING AT THE PILATES WORKSHOP?

There are a limited number of parking spaces directly outside the studio. However, please ALL be aware of parking restrictions and where else you can park should the car park be full. Please DO NOT park in any other businesses spaces during the daytime on weekdays. If you park on any double yellow lines you may receive a parking fine. There is plenty of free parking in local roads only 1-2 min walk away. i.e. Marshals Drive, Gurney Court Road, Chalkdell Fields etc. Please also remember not to arrive to class too early! There is a 15-minute turn around between classes, to allow one class to leave the studio and car park before the next begins. You are more likely to get a space outside the studio if you arrive 5 minutes before class starts
