Classical Ballet Basics

By Jo Siska
next start May 3rd 2019
Friday 17:00 ‐ 18:30


Have you ever wanted to dance ballet? Maybe you think you are too old to start ballet now? No, you are definitely not! This class is designed for people with no previous experience in ballet or those who wants to refine their technique at a basic level. Jos Siska gives newcomers, regardless their age, a lot of time to explore in detail what exactly the body does in the different movements.

This ballet course offers the opportunity to get to know ballet as a form of movement from the beginning. We work on posture, coordination, musicality and sense of space. The focus will be on learning the basic positions of legs, arms and head as more complex sequences of motion follow at the bar and in the center. The lesson is aimed at those who have no experience in ballet, but beginners who already have some prior knowledge and want to refresh or deepen their basic knowledge are welcome in this course.


Try Out Class

For those who are not sure if they want to commit to a contract or this course for the duration of 4 months Jo Siska will hold a try out class on April 26th 2019 class before the official class begin on May 3rd.


May 3rd 2019 – August 30th 2019

In 4 months Jo Siska teaches the basics of classical ballet. Afterwards you will be ready to continue your training and take ballet classes for beginners with prior knowledge (**). 

Please register for this class!

Due to the high interest in this beginners class and the limited space on the barre in the studio, we decided to collect registrations from participants to make sure that those who wish to attend regularely can do so and have their place not taken by people who just wish to drop in or try out.  We expect participants to sign a contract with us for the duration of those 4 months. So if you wish to take this class starting in May 2019 for the duration of 4 months please write us an e-mail to with the subject “Ballett Beginner Fr 17:00”.

You can still visit this class without a contract and drop in and pay per class or with a multi ticket. We just cannot guarantee you a spot throughout the course duration since it’s a first come first serve basis.
