Ballet for Absolute Beginner Adults
Interested in taking ballet for the first time ever in a safe and fun environment? Or want to gently reenter ballet? Excellent for developing core work, great posture, and better balance and coordination! Absolute beginner ballet classes are offered in 6 week cycles several times a year and are designed for absolute beginners and/or those who have been absent from dance for many years and want to start again from the beginning. Curriculum is specifically set to maximize the adult learning process.

What Level Should I Be In?
Many people who have been away from ballet for a long time choose to re-enter through Intro to Ballet to acclimate themselves gently back into regular ballet class. It is a great way to start! Each person is different and after many years away from dance re-entering ballet will depend on factors such as how much muscle memory the student has retained, his or her physical fitness, and the type of prior training. The best way to see where you belong is to come in for class and allow us to asses where you are at so we can make recommendations as to which classes would best suit your needs and goals at this time.
Please check out Specialty Course pages for classes such as partnering, turns, repertory, tap, and even more!
