The Yuka Kodama Ballet Group is an informal group which brings together people of all ages who enjoy dancing classical ballet, studying technique and performing. The group began its life in Japan several years ago, and is now based in Oxford offering a range of ballet classes mainly for adults (including pointe work, pas de deux and men’s classes) to ballet enthusiasts from all over the world. 

Our dancing is very much in the classical tradition with a strong bias towards Russian techniqueprimarily the Bolshoi Ballet’s method. Many of Yuka’s teachers were former Tokyo Ballet Company members, and learned directly from Sulamith Messerer, who laid the foundations of that company. She was sister to the legendary dancer and teacher, Asaf Messerer, of the Bolshoi Ballet and aunt to the equally legendary Maya Plisetskaya, whom she trained.
