Reading University Ballet Society 2019-2020
Welcome to Reading University's enthusiastic, inspiring and hard-working Ballet Society! Our society provides skill and performance based dance classes and shows for students who may have never done ballet before, want to pick up a exhilarating skill again or want to continue ballet!
We can't wait to see any new and old faces in class to start the year ahead! Our year will be an escape from university and an opportunity to take part in classes, stretching sessions, shows and even competition work!
All our ranges of ballet classes include a warm-up as well as barre and centre work taught by our lovely and fantastic teacher Kasia. We hold extra classes for our national dance competitions where we showcase our hard-work to other universities for the chance of winning our society awards!!!!
We are very proud to even announce our stretching and conditioning class new for 2019-2020!!! This will include different students teaching a range of skills over the year so students have the opportunity to develop skills like flexibility, strength, agility and more!!
Classes take place on Wednesdays in Sportspark and/or in Wessex Hall as follows:
Beginners 6:00-7:00pm (Wessex Hall)
Our stretching class will take place on Mondays in 3Sixty at 8-9pm
