David Donnelly

Ballet Burn

Ever wanted to start your day feeling like a ballerina? David’s class integrates elements of a professional dancer’s everyday warm-up taken before a day of rehearsals and performances. There will be a series of progressing, functional exercises that will focus on strength, flexibility, and full body coordination—your legs will definitely be burning!


Expect high energy music to keep the atmosphere fun and lighthearted. Don’t worry, we won’t be taking any of this to the stage.


Suitable for all ability levels. A love for ballet or dance would be helpful but not required.
