I was initially nervous that I simply wouldn't have enough space in my apartment, that my window sill wouldn't be an adequate ‘barre’, but I just re-arrange my furniture accordingly, do a little quick shuffling when we turn to do the other side and I can make it work!"

MEET HEATHER

FOUNDER & ARTISTIC DIRECTOR - A.I.S.T.D (Dip)
HOLDER OF THE ENRICO CECCHETTI DIPLOMA

My vocation began in South Africa where I trained extensively as a dancer before travelling across the US, Canada, and the UK, gaining a wealth of experience from performing, touring and teaching.

Being a performer is incredibly tough, not just physically but mentally as well.  I understand how operating in high pressured environments can have an impact on wellbeing, and so I always look to provide an outlet in my workouts – whether that’s working up a sweat or relaxing with stretching and posture correction. 

Going on to teach internationally following retirement from performing, I spent a number of years working on some amazing grass roots projects, introducing ballet to children in deprived areas; rewarding work that helped me develop many techniques to promote inclusion.

THE INCEPTION OF BALLET CONTOURS' FITNESS PROGRAMME

After taking a break to look after my daughter, whose special educational needs were becoming increasingly apparent, I decided to embark upon creating a unique programme of ballet-based workouts for adults.  Knowing first-hand the importance of combining physical fitness with mindfulness, especially when finding time for yourself seems impossible, my programme has been specifically designed to support the overall health and wellbeing of all participants through a progressive set of barre workouts, where the movements, use of breath, delivery and music are all of equal importance in helping you to achieve your goals for both body and mind. 
 
All of our sessions are fully insured and with over 25 years of teaching experience, you can be confident that your workout has been designed to ensure expert tuition, providing ethical and professional guidance to promote safe practices.
