Dance Classes Aberdeenshire | Lawrence Dance Academy


Ballet dancing comes from the origins of the Italian renaissance courts of the 15th and 16th centuries.

Classical Ballet is what people generally think of when we talk about ‘Ballet’. This is characterized by graceful, flowing movements. This has progressed to Neo-Classical ballet which included increased speed, energy and attack in its movements and Contemporary Ballet looking at floor work and greater range of movement and body line.
