The participants of the masterclass will meet World Ballet Series’ cast members in a studio-type setting, learn ballet language (how to say: “let’s party” using your ballet arms), see some first class ballet dancing, find out the challenge of the first position and more. No previous ballet experience is required for those who want to participate.
