Class Descriptions

New to Ballet

For adults interesting in learning how to dance without any prior experience. This class will emphasis on balance and coordination, stretching, beginning barre exercises and simple combinations across the floor.

Beginning Ballet

For those with basic dance skills, this course guides participants through the structured format of ballet training: barre work, center floor, across the floor, and combination. The instructor will assess the skills of the class and devise a program that will build upon the skills that they already possess.

Intermediate Ballet

The class specially designed to expand the classical vocabulary, movement potential and kinetic awareness of the student. The class constantly challenges students to refine their technique while learning more specific and technically advanced movements at the barre, in the center and across the floor. Ballet shoes are required.

Advanced Ballet

The class will work on grace, precision of movement and elaborate formal gestures, steps and poses. Coordination, strength, flexibility, rhythm and musicality are all emphasized. This class will leave students  refreshed and stimulated–both physically and artistically. Ballet shoes are required.


Students will utilize previously learned ballet technique while working in pointe shoes. These exercises focus on strengthening the feet and ankles.  Class is $7.50 for the 1/2 hour class or $6.00 if you purchase a class card.
