B Ballet FAB is a queer-infused, trans-positive, gay & playful, ballet-inspired contemporary dance class geared toward absolute beginners & those returning to dance after a long break. Do you want to engage in pleasure and play of ballet, but without all the trimmings? This class if for you!
Sara Porter offers a relaxed approach to dance technique to encourage healthy alignment, build strength, extend flexibility, develop clarity and articulation in movement, while working at a slow and gentle pace. The class incorporates clear technical form, employing humour and humility to find movement that feels comfortable and comfortably challenging.
