    Daytime Class in London on Monday?

    Sadly I woke up feeling really ill so am spending my excitingly planned day stuck in bed instead I’ll have to try and make it to his class another time because it sounds so much fun!

    Daytime Class in London on Monday?

    Thank you so much for all your replies, it’s so helpful having personal experiences of the classes as every teacher and description on levels is different. Think I’m going to give Adam’s class at danceworks a try as the timings work better for me but I’m definitely going to try and make it to the London Russian at some point because it sounds amazing!

    Daytime Class in London on Monday?

    Would anyone be able to recommend a daytime class in London on Monday? I’m there next week and hoping to drop in somewhere as my classes have a full week off! Roughly around low intermediate level, similar to David Kierce’s improvers plus class that he does at central? I’m getting better at picking up combinations but not incredibly fast at it quite yet so someone who doesn’t do anything insanely complicated! I spotted possibly either a beginner or intermediate class at London Russian ballet school, or an afternoon class I think it was with Adam at Danceworks if anyone has any first hand experience with these? Thanks!

    Ok, can someone explain what a 20% Tax Rate means?

    There’s a really helpful calculator if you google salary calculator UK. You can put in earnings and it will roughly work out the tax and take home pay per day, month, year, etc. Not an exact figure but can be useful if you want a rough idea and don’t want to do the maths!
  7. I saw this too and was incredibly surprised anyone thought it was an appropriate photo to use.
  8. Hi Kate, is this ticket still available? How far around is the seat located?

    Audience Behaviour

    I don’t live in London, so when I’m heading to the city I’m normally there for the day. Whilst I would love to dress up, not wearing comfortable clothes for walking round all day before the performance would be completely impractical. I always try to wear a skirt and nice top when I can but sometimes I am rushing around from somewhere else and end up wearing jeans and carrying a smallish backpack. I also tend to stand so wearing comfy shoes (even trainers) is sometimes necessary... I understand the desire to make an evening special and when I’m staying up I do try to dress up but to exclude an entire group of people who aren’t lucky enough to live close by to the theatre or have the free time to leisurely change before the show seems a little unfair. I’d much rather be next to a clean and quiet person in jeans than a noisy, rude person in a dress! Attending the theatre and ballet is a special experience but that isn’t only defined by how you dress, but also your attitude to the performance.

    Wanted: Character Shoes

    Looking for character shoes, possibly size 3/3.5 (not sure what sizing is like, I wear a size 4 in canvas ballet shoes and have tried a 3 in Bloch split pro character shoes which were fine) if anyone has a cheap pair to sell? Thanks!

    I agree, she’s very good at what she does and if I can combine it with another class in a weekend it’s very worth doing. Just on its own I miss the movement and artistry of ballet which is what makes class most enjoyable.

    I tried Hannah’s beginners class on Saturday afternoon, it was a good back to basics but not my most enjoyable style of teaching. I also really missed doing anything across the floor, everything was very static. I also managed to get to David’s improvers plus class at Central and it was perfect. Really fun combinations but still breaking down the technique. Thanks for your advice everyone!

    You are all so full of knowledge it’s incredibly helpful thank you! Hannah’s class at danceworks would be good as my technique is all over the place at the moment but I am tempted by Michael’s class at central. I’m originally Cechetti trained so it would be fun to get back to that. Is the beginner pointe part of the class and if so what the sort of level that is aimed at?

    I didn’t make it this Sunday in the end, but I’m planning to try the improvers plus class next week with David so I’ll let you know how it goes! Does anyone have recommendations for a class any time on Friday in London which might be low intermediate level?

    Thanks Nicola, the improvers plus is probably perfect then. Any idea how busy the Sunday class gets? Do I need to get there really early to get a space?
