Our Adult Ballet classes are drop-in, beginner-level classes for students with little-to-no experience in dance! We welcome you to explore this beautiful, strengthening art form under our expertise. Classes are held in a grand studio with live piano music. If you are looking to try something new, or get back to your ballet roots, this is the class for you! Our classes are based in Vaganova and RAD techniques, and are designed to introduce you to, and strengthen your classical ballet foundations. We foster a supportive and encouraging environment, aimed at providing you the best experience possible.
