Michael danced and performed for nearly two decades with British and other European companies, including a role as ballet master.
Class starts with a 45 minute barre; if you have pointe shoes, please bring them and wear them at the barre.
This will teach you how to warm up your feet and use them safely in pointe shoes. A non-pointe barre is taught at the same time.
This will be followed by a typical ballet centre with an emphasis on enjoyment and expressive dancing.
The whole class is based on the principles laid down by Maestro Enrico Cecchetti.
As one dancer wrote, "Michael's classes were superb. Such an imaginative and inventive barre, the chance to experience some Cecchetti style and centre work, which I thoroughly enjoyed. All taught with good humour, wisdom and patience ."
