Adults (those who trained in dance during their childhood/teenage years)

Over the years, we have welcomed back countless ‘grown up’ pupils, returning to Mareli to join in with our thriving adult dance classes. Classes are vibrant and fun. Whilst many return with a few ‘butterflies in their tummy,’ it doesn’t take long to rekindle the technique and ability in dance that was developed during childhood.
