foundation in ballet technique and vocabulary in a series of steps.
This class is mainly for people who danced when they were younger and remember the very basics of ballet and are returning to ballet after
years away and are looking for a “refresher” course, or have a lot of experience in another dance style and want to quickly cover all the basics of ballet before advancing. Exercises include fundamental barre work as well as basic turns and
jumps. These are then combined in simple movement phrases.

Dancers have the most amazing bodies. They stand not too muscly, still lean, but powerful and confident. For people who do not feel ready to face the rigours of classical ballet training, but still would like to get the type of body dancers have, Central School of Ballet Phnom Penh's Body Conditioning programme will help them build ballet strength.
A typical body conditioning class will be filled with workouts to help them get the overall tone and workout that dancers get from ballet. Almost all of the workouts are based on some ballet move. The exercises combine stretching with strengthening and aim to improve
body tone giving students greater flexibility, cardiovascular
stamina and better posture. Students will also get a sense of achievement when they learn to master complex combinations that give them the feeling that they are dancing.
Body Conditioning classes are not being offered this term.
