"I started ballet at the ripe old age of 59, never having had lessons before. 

I achieved a distinction in my BBO Grades 1 to 3 examinations and a merit in Grade 4. I then switched to the Performance Award examination preparation and gained a distinction at Grade 6. I am now working towards Grade 7!

I am 71 years old, and I know that without such excellent training I should have given up years ago."
"It was not really a case of whether to join a class, it was, and still is, which one(s) to join!

So far, Silver Swans on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, then Stretch and Tone on Wednesday mornings, with an added adult ballet class (not beginners) on a Monday morning, and then there are the evening adult ballet classes on Monday and Thursday evenings.

I love them all!"
"Classes are fun, you can work to whatever level you are at, and helpful tips are always there.

I am so delighted to have the opportunity to share just how much I enjoy the time I spend in classes. 

I would have no hesitation in encouraging anyone to try one!"
