A beginner / intermediary ballet class taught by Senior Soloist, Alice Crawford from the English National Ballet.

All ages and abilities are welcome.

From an article with Kate Miranda at Putney Time & Leisure:

“I am touring White Lodge with Alice Crawford, who joined The Royal Ballet School in 1983 at the age of 11 and graduated to join the English National Ballet in 1990. She went on to become a senior soloist with ENB and retired in 2005 to teach floor barre to injured ballerinas. Alice was known for Clara in The Nutcracker and was named one of Princess Diana’s favourite ballerinas (Princess Diana was ENB’s patron). She lives in Putney with her family and last visited White Lodge for a reunion several years ago. Darcey Bussell was student a few years ahead of Alice and many of their friends now teach here.”

The whole point of jumping on a trampoline is to have fun! There’s oodles of scientific research on the benefits, but most notably NASA calls it “the most efficient and effective exercise yet devised by man!”

We combine the right dosages of effective training, with a bit of lightheartedness, and deliver it in a training environment that’s free from ego, but full of support.
