Today we have the lovely Susan, the S of "S and J Talk Ballet" giving some thoughts about the Beginner Pointe class held on Saturdays from 12.15- 12.45pm at the Arts Educational School, 14 Bath Road, London W4 1LY. It is taught by the wonderful dance artist, teacher Mark Kimmett/Kelly.
This class was created with adult learners in mind and it is important to take the Beginner Improvers Ballet class beforehand to ensure proper preparation for the body is in the place!

Take it away Susan!
We are nearly at the end of another term and the pointe class at Arts Ed has seen new dancers join during this term. Mark manages the class in his own unique way so that everyone attending is treated as an individual so that nobody is held back nor anyone new is left feeling rushed. Some members are now able to undertake the centre exercises on pointe while others are on demi-pointe. Last Saturday Mark offered to partner each of us individually, everyone took up his invitation and I am sure I was not the only one to have enjoyed the experience. I must admit for that brief time it made me feel like a ‘proper ballerina’! ( We can all dream )
Mark seems pleased with our progress and I am sure we can all highlight things we can do now that we were unable to do at the beginning of the term.
Thank you, Mark, for your boundless help and support.
Following the pointe class this Saturday (11th August) everyone is welcome to meet for an end of term drink at 1pm.
