It's amazing what goes into making something effortless.

"No performance is a perfect performance but some performances allow for the feeling of perfection. Achieving this moment of ecstasy easily validates all the pain and struggle of the art form by taking us, and possibly our audience, for a moment to a world beyond our own."

John Lowe, 91 years old

A former prisoner of war and grandfather to 11, John decided to start taking ballet at age 79 after attending a granddaughter’s recital.

Remember it’s never too late to start enjoying the benefits of ballet!
