As the adage goes, everything is beautiful at the ballet. And that’s possibly even more true if you were to catch the art while visiting the cosmopolitan and sunshiny Californian city of San Diego as well. But until we can head there again, the San Diego Ballet (the beachside city’s premier ballet company) are offering a series of online dance classes (as well as tap and pilates) for those at home to join in. Open to all skill levels, the morning classes (best because of the time difference) are around an hour long and a whole lot of fun and just a US$10 donation (plus a tip, at your discretion) is payable.

You can just imagine us practicing the first position arabesque. We like the leotard.
