Ballet Retreats

Join ballet teacher Clare Novaes for a deep delve into classical ballet at a one-day retreat in tranquil rural surroundings. Whether you are new to ballet or have some previous dance experience, a ballet retreat could be the perfect choice to relax and unwind. Adults of all ages are welcome.

Morning and afternoon workshops include:

  • Body conditioning warm up
  • Ballet
  • Progressing ballet technique
  • Repertoire

The day includes a nourishing seasonal lunch, with locally-produced refreshments served in the morning and afternoon. In between ballet workshops we make time to explore our wonderful surroundings with a rejuvenating nature walk.

What to Bring

Just yourself, and…

…wear something you can move comfortably in, bring slip on shoes like sliders for over your ballet shoes and warm clothes for after class and walking in Elmfield Estate.

Gift Vouchers
