​The Ballet Coach Is Offering Free Online Lessons

​The Ballet Coach Is Offering Free Online Lessons

Since the strict isolation measures were announced on Monday evening, we've been trying to find ways to keep ourselves busy.

Some have been getting creative with DIY and others have been joining in with Joe Wicks' Body Coach P.E lessons.

But now, there's another virtual class you can take and it doesn't involve power tools or doing burpees - it's all about dancing.

Sarah De-Feu is an English National Ballet School trained dancer and ballet coach, usually teaching children.

But Sarah has now taken her classes online and opened them up to kids and adults of all abilities - you don't have to be trained to join in.

So if you always fancied yourself as a prima ballerina, or you just want to take part in some exercise that will no doubt help keep you strong and fit, then now's your big chance to do it for free.

That's right, her ballet classes won't cost you a penny, so it's a great time to give it a go, get some exercise, or simply keep your kids busy whilst you try and get some work done.

Who knows, maybe you, your hubby or your two-year-old will find a new hobby?

Sarah has been holding live classes to Instagram and Facebook already this week, which have received stellar feedback.

One said on Facebook: "It was fabulous thank you so much daddy and lottie loved it".

Another added: "I normally do a weekly Seniors Ballet Class, so it's great you are putting on exercises for our age group. More please! I had a go at your 10am Class (apart from the jumps as recently had knee replacements) and really enjoyed it. Thank you. More for the oldies please!"

But now Sarah's The Ballet Coach channel has been approved on Youtube, she has posted a schedule for her classes which will air live on the streaming site next week, urging people to dance with her from the comfort of their homes.

On Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays, 9.30am will be for kids aged three to five, whilst 10am will be adult ballet stretch and 4pm will be for children aged five to seven.

Tuesday and Thursday at 4pm will be for mid-level ballerinas aged seven to 12-years-old, and 5pm will be intermediate adult classes.

And there's even a class for the grannies and grandads on Wednesdays at 10.30am.

We best get stretching - it's been so long since we stepped into a ballet hall, we're bound to be rusty...
