holistic ballet

holistic ballet® was created out of the need for safer and healthier ballet training for professional ballet and contemporary dancers, as well as for amateur dance students, without compromising the quality and purpose of classical dance training. holistic ballet draws on principles from yoga, pilates, gyrotonic®, functional anatomy, and psychology to help dancers to reach their full potential whilst minimising the risk of injury. ballet and pilates classes, as well as hypnotherapy, are offered in group classes and private sessions, in-person and online.
