Glauco Di Lieto has danced in some of Italy's and Britain's most renowned ballet companies.
He has been teaching adult ballet classes for many years and has developed his own personal technique which focuses on maximising strength and minimising strain through correct alignment, awareness of weight and balance, effective breathing and complete coordination.
This downloadable class is only available from Dance Online.
The DVD includes 20 exercises. Barre exercises are executed to both sides and each exercise includes a full teacher's demonstration and Teacher's Notes with detailed advice about corrections and technique that ballet instructors will find invaluable.
This class is aimed at adult improvers, with some previous experience and a solid grasp of basic ballet technique. The exercises may also be used with younger ballet students at a teacher's discretion, though the pace and length of some exercises may need to be adjusted. The class is not suitable for complete beginners.
Though most of the class can be performed within a small space, there are some jump exercises that require larger spaces and a suitable dance floor. Care should be taken when performing the class within a home environment and you should always seek medical advice before undertaking strenuous physical exercise.

This is an absolutely brilliant dvd for home practice. The explanations and reasonings behind different exercise are so well explained by Glauco and make complete sense and are so helpful. The fact that is a dvd for adults is also such a bonus. Glauco is a superb teacher and demonstrates each exercise so well and gives corrections to the adults in the class. He also provides really good exercises from the warm up, to barre, to centre practise (which is very do-able at home) to the cool down at the end. I would highly recommend this dvd for home practice or when you can’t get to a class. Thank you Glauco and Dance Online.
