Do you love ballet?

Did you dance when you were younger?

Have you always wanted to try it out?

Come along to our Petts Wood classes!


10:30-11:30 | Adult Ballet | The Royal British Legion, 


20:00-21:00 | Adult Ballet | The G.E.A Hall, Woodhurst Avenue,


19:30-20:30 | Adult Beginners Ballet | The GEA Hall, Woodhurst Avenue,


08:30-09:30 | Adult Ballet | The Royal British Legion,


During 'adult ballet' classes, a professional ballet barre is put up and we set some simple but slightly flouncy combinations to classical music. It is a full classical ballet class of barre and centre work and you'll be amazed at how brilliant your whole body will feel after dancing exercises and steps created hundreds of years ago.

The classes have a fun and relaxed atmosphere where everyone is welcome.

The Teachers

Istvan Vadasz 

Istvan received a Ballet degree and graduated from the Hungarian Dance Academy as a Dance Artist specialising in Theatrical Dance. As well as a long career performing with the Hungarian National Ballet, he has also danced in opera houses and theatres in Mexico, Switzerland, Germany and the USA.

During these years, he performed and learned most classical repertoire and had the chance to dance with international ballet celebrities such as Carlos Acosta, Alina Cojocaru and Frederico Bonelli, who all played leading roles in the London Royal Ballet.

In the last two years, Istvan has been teaching ballet in London and residing in Petts Wood. He has been guest teaching at our little classes for a few terms now and luckily, he has enjoyed it so much that he has decided to take on some regular classes.
