Class Description

Louise focuses on correct placement and efficient use of turnout at the barre, setting the body up to move freely in the centre where there is a strong emphasis on musicality and artistry. Her classes are fun and challenging, and dancers are encouraged to ask questions, learning and developing their technique within a positive and friendly studio environment.

– ‘Louise’s class is very structured, physical and beneficial for a dancer, with the right amount of style and simplicity.’ – Liam Mower, Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures

– ‘As a contemporary dancer who still has a lot to learn and understand about ballet, I really appreciate how Louise is able to look at each individual and guide and correct with care yet control.’ – Matthew Sandiford, BalletBoyz

– ‘Louise is truly passionate about her job, and that is reflected in her class.’ – Marie Astrid Mence, Ballet Black
