Classical Ballet class description

The philosophy of Anna and her teachers is to inspire in their pupils a love of music, movement and freedom of expression through dance. The skills gained through encouragement and discipline in the classroom can be applied to all aspects of their lives beyond the classroom, and students are actively taught to find both inner strength and the will to achieve their best in any situation.
