Michelle has been a freelance Ballet teacher for 20 years, she trained at the Royal Academy of Dance, London, gaining BA (Hons) Art and Teaching of Ballet. Michelle’s classes are relaxed and holistic, she uses imagery to help you embody classical ballet technique so you can build strength, poise, balance and agility. Classes typically focus on Barre, Barre a terre (slow technical exercises on the floor- bring a yoga/Pilates mat) Port de Bras (Slow classical carriage of the arms with simple foot work) and Centre Practice (coordinated leg and arm movements learnt on the barre but performed more dynamically in the centre of the room) Michelle is planning to offer immersive weekend Ballet retreats and weekly classes at the Painted Barn in 2024.
