Our Adult Ballet Classes are designed for adults of all ages and abilities to drop-in anytime.
Classes are open-ended and tailored to the needs of the students in each class – exercises are progressive week after week. Transition from one level to the next can occur once you feel prepared.
Suitable for adults with zero experience or prior ballet knowledge. For adults who want a fixed course and learn the bare basics of ballet. After completing the course, dancers can join Beginner 1 or the graded class.
Ballet Fundamentals is a 4-week course that will teach new dancers the basics of ballet technique and terminology.
