Ballet is a good challenge that will lift your spirits. As well as all of the benefits that come with pursuing a craft and with exercise, it is good to see some friendly faces and experience the camaraderie that we all so badly need.
Don’t worry if you feel shy, everyone is welcome regardless of level or how you may be feeling at the moment. You can turn your own camera on or off, so you can either just follow along or get feedback from me if you want it.
You may even find Zoom classes less pressure than being in the studio, as you can disappear from the screen anytime you like to have a rest.
