Get Dancer Arms with Our Ballet Arms Workout – Improver Centre Focused on Arms

Ballet With Isabella (BWI), led by the esteemed ballerina Isabella McGuire Mayes, offers a unique online ballet arms workout program: Improver Centre Focused on Arms. This class caters specifically to dancers like you – those with a solid ballet foundation yearning to get to the next level, refine their artistry, develop those ballerina arms, and work on your technical skills.

Isabella, a graduate of the Royal Ballet School and a former soloist with the Mikhailovsky Ballet, understands the importance of taking your ballet to the next level. This program bridges the gap between beginner and intermediate levels, striking a perfect balance between challenging you and ensuring steady progress.

Why Focus on Arms in Ballet?

Many dancers underestimate the power of expressive arms in ballet. They aren’t just aesthetic appendages; they’re crucial for:

  • Storytelling: Graceful arm movements enhance the emotional narrative of the dance.
  • Balance and Coordination: Strong, controlled arms contribute to overall balance and coordination during complex movements.
  • Line and Extension: Precise arm movements elongate the body’s line and create a visually stunning silhouette.

The BWI Difference: Learning from the Best

BWI’s Improver Centre Focused on Arms goes beyond simply learning basic arm positions. You’ll delve into the renowned Vaganova method, known for its stunning “port de bras” (carriage of the arms). Under Isabella’s expert guidance, you’ll:

  • Practice a complete ballet centre: This comprehensive arms ballet program encompasses adagio (slow, flowing movements), turns, and jumps, all with a focus on upper body engagement and expressive arm movements.
  • Develop a deeper understanding of port de bras: Isabella will break down the intricacies of beautiful arm carriage, ensuring you master the elegance and precision of the Vaganova style.
  • Refine your overall artistry: As your arm movements become more nuanced and expressive, your entire dance will take on a new level of artistry and emotional depth.

Beyond Technique: The Enjoyment of Dance

BWI’s program isn’t just about technical mastery; it’s about embracing the joy of dance. As you gain confidence in your arm movements and artistry, you’ll experience a newfound sense of freedom and enjoyment in your ballet practice.

Bonus! The program features beautiful piano accompaniment by Guy Attew, creating a truly immersive and inspiring learning environment.

This program is ideal for:

  • Dancers with a foundation: If you’re comfortable with basic ballet movements but want to take your artistry and technique to the next level, this class is perfect.
