Avani+ Fares Maldives Resort is bringing classical ballet to its shores with the launch of Baa Atoll Ballet Retreat from November 6 to 19.
The exclusive retreat, featuring Royal Ballet-trained dancer Karis Scarlette, will introduce guests of all ages and levels to classical ballet. Scarlette will break the steps down and add her own energy for an uplifting experience.
Group classes and one-to-one sessions will take place in a dance studio complete with barres and mirrors.
Young dancers aged five and under can delight in the Tutus & Twirls class, blending storytelling elements and interactive props. Guests looking to connect with nature can join Sunrise Serenity, a revitalising session that combines stretching, mobility exercises, and mindful breath work, set to the natural sounds of the island at dawn.
Unique ballet-themed spa experiences, like Tutu Tension Release Massage and Dancer’s Delight Detox Wrap, will also be offered. All treatments are accompanied by melodic ballet scores.
The theme flows through the resort’s F&B offerings, like Tutu Tini and Grand Jeté Gin Fizz.
