Ballet Foundation Technique

I’m launching a series of small, intimate-sized ballet foundation classes starting Sunday April 23 at 11:30am. Each class is for six participants only. All classes take place at Raindance Film Centre next to Charing Cross Station. Each class costs £15.00.

My new class will focus on the foundation of your technique working in small groups of six to facilitate one on one attention. Dates will be flexible, working around my performance schedule.

We’ll start with a ballet warm up to stretch and prepare the body followed by a ballet barre designed to strengthen and align. In the centre practice we will look at set movements designed to give you something useful you can takeaway.

About Désirée Ballantyne

I moved to London from Toronto and trained at the Royal Ballet School’s White Lodge and the English National Ballet’s Upper School.
On graduation I joined English National Ballet and worked my way up from Corps de Ballet to Soloist. I left ENB last year and was cast in Michael Clark’s to a simple, rock ’n’ roll . . . song.
In 2017 I was the lead ballerina in Raymond Gubbay’s Strauss Gala Tour.
Currently I’m exploring dance, singing and acting opportunities in Europe and America.
