In this film, Xander teaches his own specially designed Basic Ballet Class. This class is basic in its difficulty level but is aimed at those who already have an understanding of classical ballet technique and who may wish to take a slow and simple class.
This class consists of a long, slow barre and a few combinations of centre practice and allegro which although simple are all very beneficial even for more advanced dancers who wish to build strength in basic exercises or who may wish to do a thorough warm up class.
Xander talks through every combination not only explaining the exercises but also giving clear instructions on how to execute the steps for maximum benefit.
