Classic Ballet UK

CLASSIC BALLET UK

Classic Ballet UK is the new branch of Let's All Dance, creating and producing our larger, classical productions.
 
Choreographer and dancer, Fran Mangiacasale, now runs professional classes for CBUK which introduce dancers to the company's style and ensures they have the required technique, strength and stamina for the touring productions.
 
CBUK incorporates Let's All Dance's aim to inspire, educate, entertain, and its policy to engage children and families from all backgrounds, and adds it's rigour and discipline to raise the artistic standard of all it's productions.
 
Fran bases his classes on the natural principles of movement. He places particular focus on the spiralling of the spine and use of the centre in order to release the dance and find freedom and excellence in the technique.
