About Ballet Intermediate with Denzil Bailey

This is a light-hearted and enjoyable experience for dancers who have a solid foundation in classical ballet.

If you’re looking to build movement vocabulary while retaining longer and more complex sequences, this class led by Denzil Bailey offers options for both. The focus on the relationship between music and dance creates a unique and engaging experience that will leave you feeling accomplished and inspired.

Using rhythm and accent, the class aims to enhance muscle control and performance quality, all while being accompanied by virtuosic composer and pianist Anna Gillespie.

About the artist

Denzil started to dance aged 17 in a weekly jazz class in a church hall in Cricklewood. Encouraged by his teacher to take ballet, he joined the London School of Classical Dance. After three years he was chosen to join the internationally prestigious English National Ballet where he danced for 10 years, touring the world.

Following some time freelancing and raising his son Jacob, Denzil was approached by Cassa Pancho, a dancer writing her dissertation on the lack of black classical dancers, and together they founded the renowned Ballet Black. This led to numerous requests to teach, and Denzil unintentionally became a ballet teacher, which he now calls his ‘dream job’.

Denzil has regular open classes across London, and teaches for dance companies such as Rambert, Company Wayne McGregor, Neo Ballet, Tavaziva, Skanes Danstheater, and Ballet Black.
