Short day options

We have received some inquiries about short day / drop in / ballet class only options.
Why not take a half day off work and do our morning EBAS and Ballet class for the week?
Please see our program page for details about our short day option.

Some feedback from our 2018 particpants:

I was very satisfied with the course and particularly being able to apply the EBAS principles in class on a daily basis. The class format was relatively basic but that enabled focus on the technique and I felt stronger, injury-free and energised at the week’s end.
Really enjoyed it. Something residential would have been better if possible. It all went very smoothly. Well done May for organising such a great course.
I liked having the opportunity to participate in part of the course, allowing me to benefit from the classes on my own terms. I found the level to be right for me throughout the week. I thought it was great to have a much slower day.
