Bridge the Gap to Intermediate: BWI’s Improver Class for Aspiring Ballet Dancers

Have you plateaued in your ballet journey? Do you crave a deeper challenge that builds upon your existing foundation? Look no further than Ballet With Isabella’s (BWI) innovative improver class! This program, designed by Isabella McGuire Mayes is meticulously designed for dancers who yearn to improve their technique, strengthen their core, and achieve exquisite balance – all while taking their passion for ballet to the next level.

Beyond the Basics: Bridging the Gap to Intermediate

The “improver” level caters to a specific niche: dancers who possess a solid foundation in ballet but aspire for more. You’re likely comfortable with basic movements, but the desire to improve your artistry and technical prowess burns brightly. This class perfectly bridges the gap between beginner and intermediate levels, offering the right balance of challenge and approachability. While you’ll be pushed beyond your comfort zone, the exercises are carefully constructed to ensure steady progress without overwhelming frustration.

Isabella’s Signature Drilling for Improved Strength and Stamina

Ballet With Isabella’s signature drilling combinations are a cornerstone of the improver class. These meticulously crafted sequences will become your training ground for building unwavering strength and exceptional stamina. Through repetition and focused execution, you’ll solidify your technique, develop muscle memory, and cultivate the endurance needed to excel in more advanced ballet endeavours.

Mastering the Art of Turns

Get ready to pirouette your way to perfection! The improver class dedicates a significant portion of its 30-minute duration to the art of turns. You’ll delve into the intricacies of maintaining impeccable turnout, a crucial element for achieving graceful and controlled rotations. Through imagery exercises, you’ll develop a heightened awareness of your body’s positioning, allowing you to visualise and execute turns with unparalleled precision.

Strength at the Barre

The ballet barre is more than just a support system; it’s a training tool for sculpting the strength and stability required for exceptional ballet performance. The improver class features a dedicated segment focused on barre exercises designed to target specific muscle groups. These barre exercises will not only improve your technique but also lay the groundwork for more complex movements.

Improve Muscular Stamina with BWI Relevé Drills

Ballet With Isabella’s improver class takes barre work a step further with its unique BWI relevé drills. These drills specifically target the development of muscular stamina, an essential component for maintaining proper form and control throughout a ballet routine. As you master these drills, you’ll notice a significant improvement in your ability to execute graceful and sustained relevés (rises on the balls of the feet) – a hallmark of elegance in ballet.
