I don’t have much experience. Will I be able to follow the class?
All exercises are designed to be age appropriate and for beginners, but can be easily modified to your needs. So you can enjoy the class at your own level. The teacher will give modifications to choose from.

What do I have to wear in Ballet Class?
We recommend girls wear a leotard, tights and ballet flats. Long hair must be tied up in a bun. For the boys a white t-shirt, black tights and white/black socks with ballet flats.
However, if you don’t have these items, just follow along in a fitting top, leggings and socks. As long as we can see your lines, you’re good to go.
Do I need a Ballet Barre?
If you have a ballet barre, great! Otherwise just use a chair with a high back, or anything stable you can hold on to.
What will I learn in Ballet Class?
The aim is to provide you a full Ballet class experience just like in a professionally taught ballet school. The teacher will provide different exercises at the barre or in the center to stimulate musicality, body control, strength, balance coordination and expression. Our classes will support and enhance your understanding of the ballet technique while working on details to make you a beautiful dancer.
Our teachers are certified American Ballet Theater (USA) teachers following the National Training Curriculum with loads of experience teaching thousands of students already. At this moment, we successfully run a number of hybrid live classes in our dance school based in Belgium (www.ndigo.be), so we know what it takes to teach online.
What will I learn in Yoga Class?
Our yoga classes are theme-based classes. We keep the focus on solving problem areas that cause discomfort, weakness or pain. Our task is to help you strengthen these areas and create more space, mobility and more energy flowing through the body. After class you should feel an amazing light feeling in the body.
At this moment, we successfully run a number of online classes for students, adults and companies from our yoga studio based in Belgium (EU). So we know what it takes to teach online.
Is it difficult to do the technical setup?
No, not at all. Our classes are conducted via Zoom. We recommend you downloading the latest update of the Zoom app for your device. A larger screen like a laptop/tablet provides a better experience than a smartphone. A good set of speakers can also help you hear the instructions or music better. Ensure you are situated close to your router to have a solid connection. Avoid streaming services like Netflix or downloading heavy files during the class. Turn off notifications on your device if possible.
Make sure you have a safe space with an even surface and that you won’t be disturbed by other members at home or by pets. Log in 10-15 mins. beforehand.
