Enjoy Ballet

As the Artistic Director of Ballet Artémis, Sophie Ponthier believes in promoting excellence and discovery of Ballet as an Art form in itself with the ultimate goal of educating new generations of Ballet lovers. This ambitious goal is achieved through an innovative syllabus based on two major strands: building a strong technique thanks to the tradition of French Ballet and encouraging each dancer to develop his/her own sense of Expression and Artistry.
All classes can be given in French and English (as well as German and Spanish).

Young children (from 4yrs old) will enjoy creative movement to explore their own creativity and expression. They will also develop their motor skills, coordination, attention and listening skills as they prepare the study of classical ballet.

Once they are 7yrs old the students can learn the basics of Ballet Technique with Barre and Center work. Depending on the dancer's age and abilities, one or more classes a week should be attended. Pointe work for girls will be introduced in the advanced levels.

Based on the original technique from Boris Knassief, this class is designed for everyone (our oldest student is 81!) who wants to stay fit and flexible.
