A couple of years ago, I found myself in Melbourne for work and one of the things I didn't want to forego in my 6-month relocation were my 2-3 weekly dance classes. Having trained in ballet since I was 4-years old, I regularly attend Sydney Dance Company Adult Classes, which allows me to continually hone my technique in classical dance but most importantly (especially in my latter years) being able to enjoy different styles of dance as part of my fitness regime.
In my quest to see what was on offer in Melbourne, I came across ELANCE ADULT BALLET SCHOOL which facilitates dance classes for adults (and kids).
Elance Adult Ballet have schools in Flemington and East Hawthorn. The great thing about the school is you can work through a syllabus with classes suitable for complete beginners to elementary level. The teachers allow you to improve on technique in a non-threatening environment or the pressure of end of year exams or competitions.
The teachers are very caring and have a great passion for dance ranging from retired dancers from The Australian Ballet and Queensland Ballet.
I can't recommend Elance Adult Ballet School highly enough. From the teachers to the guys and girls who participate in the classes each week, everyone has an immense passion for dance and fitness and there is such a great camaraderie between students and teachers.
