Pas de chat, pirouette, glissade, rond de jambe and jete, all these exotic words and movements that make up the glorious world of ballet are purely fascinating and can give you that desired, strong ballerina body. Ballet on Kloof offers adult ballet classes for all ages and dance levels, mix in some inspiring teachers and these classes will have you wanting to grand jete back for more!
The idea of Ballet on Kloof started with 2 girls working at a ballet shop after graduating from UCT School of Dance, wanting to create an opportunity for adults from any experience level to learn classical ballet in a pleasurable environment, without the pressure of going into an exam and being competitive.
The studio opened its doors in September 2012 in a beautiful space on trendy Kloof Street, making it central for everyone to attend after work.
Ballet on Kloof gives you the opportunity to start at any age and their aim is to focus on all adults who have an interest in being fit, healthy and have a love of dance. Ballet on Kloof offers levels from Beginners to Intermediate, catering from newbies to former ballerinas. It’s a great full body work-out focused on technique, conditioning, stretching and fitness.
Ballet is a form of exercise that encourages unison between the brain and body. It helps sharpen concentration and memory. It’s great for body alignment and coordination as all exercises are completed on the left and right, allowing both sides of your body to develop equally. Ballet creates lean, defined muscles with improved posture and confidence. As an adult everyone has pressure and responsibilities and ballet allows you to be free for that hour in your day, releasing endorphins and making you feel more connected within.
The atmosphere at Ballet on Kloof is tranquil and welcoming, giving beginners the chance to ease in and truly enjoy this art form. The teachers want you to enjoy the magical and expressive world of dance. So why not haul out those old ballet pumps and get twirling?
The best part of Ballet on Kloof is of course the ideal location! Grab a guilt-free, tantalizing meal or cheeky cocktails at one of the fabulous Cape Town hotspots along Kloof Street. You have earned it! Be sure to make use of your Entertainer App to get the best Cape Town deals.
