Adult Ballet

Thursday night is Ballet night! Every week, a fun and exciting hour long class, perfect for beginners and improvers alike, is run by our ballet teacher, Rhiannon.

Each class starts with a core-strength challenging centre barre, some basic ballet exercises that always begins with Pliés (knee bends), and follows through witSONY DSCh a combination of Tendus, Glissés (pointing the feet)and Grands Battement (leg kicks).

You then move onto combination movements, where you begin to lift your legs in the air, perform some basic turning exercises, and start to jump, challenging not only your coordination, but your stamina as well.

Set to beautiful, modern piano music, this class is a fantastic way of keeping fit in a creative and artistic way. Wear what feels comfortable; just make sure you can move unrestricted, ballet shoes are preferable, but any dance shoes or even socks/bare feet in also fine! Whether you have done ballet before, or have always fancied giving it a go, this fun class is perfect for anyone wanting to add some dance into daily life!

Adult Ballet runs every Thursday 8 – 9pm


Epsom Downs- New Generation Expo

Demonstration of Pilates at the Next Demonstration Expo

Demonstration of Pilates at the Next Demonstration Expo

On Sunday 19th April 2015, the team at The Chatsworth Studio travelled to Epsom Downs Racecourse to be part of The New Generation Expo, an exhibition for local families and businesses. We were advertising and displaying not only the extensive Pilates program, but Sarah and Rhiannon were there to promote the various dance classes now set up at the studio, including adult ballet, baby ballet from 18 months+, children’s Ballet, Street Dance during the week and Theatre Dance on a Saturday morning.

We had the opportunity to run a children’s dance session to some catchy music, with some of the younger children at the event joining in and showing us some great enthusiasm and creativity. Christine also led a brief Pilates demonstration, giving us the opportunity to introduce Pilates to anyone who might not have previously known much about it.

Additionally, Sara Calvo was at the Expo advertising Blend to Balance, her massage business, which runs at The Chatsworth Studio on a Thursday and Friday.

Safe to say everyone had a fantastic time, and we look forward to welcoming you to The Chatsworth Studio in the near future.
