Ballet Technique and Repertoire
Learn classical ballet positions, technique and repertoire
This course is designed for barre teachers who want to learn classical ballet positions, technique and repertoire. The course is designed for people who are new to ballet, as a guide of how to incorporate balletic movements into your classes. Each exercise is demonstrated in a video and accompanied with instructions (just like you would see in a manual) on how to teach them.
This course includes:
- Positions of the feet and arms
- 15 x barre work repertoire and foundation exercises
- A 6-week ballet program (so you can immerse yourself in ballet)
- How to introduce ballet to your class
It's a wonderful way to expand your knowledge to bring a ballet flavour to your barre classes.
Sophie obtained a Bachelor of Arts (Musical Theatre) graduating from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts in 2014. Since then Sophie has toured Australia as a performer and has been teaching dance and singing at high Schools and performing arts schools. It was while touring she found the beautiful work out that is “Barre” and loved how it complimented her dance background in a fun workout class environment.
In 2016 Sophie became a qualified barre fitness instructor, training through Barre Body. She moved to Sydney to join the team, eventually becoming Sydney regional manager. Sophie then ventured back to her home state and became Melbourne regional manager in 2019. In 2019 Sophie also completed her Mat pilates and Reformer training through Barre Body.
It is Sophie’s love of Ballet and her dance background that inspired her to create this course for you. We hope that you enjoy these modules and get inspired to add some ballet into your barre classes.
