A ballet taster session with Edgar

Date: 16th Mar 2022 @ 1:06pm

Whilst many of us were excited and enthusiasticabout a ballet taster session, some of us were a little curious, and some were less than enthusiastic. However, we quickly discovered that ballet is fun, and can be very exhausting! Edgar put us through our paces with the three P's - Position, Presentation and Practice. We had to work hard and concentrate, using muscles we perhaps don't usually use, and we were surprised at how tiring it was. Edgar made it fun as we lifted our 'beards', and lifted our legs like bananas - we also had a packet of crisps under our arms which we had to be careful not to pop! At the end we did plenty of stretching, and Edgar demonstrated his flexibility by doing the splits.
