Adult Classes

Adult Ballet is designed to introduce the principles of classical ballet to adults whose previous training was limited to a childhood experience or who always dreamed of studying ballet and never had the opportunity. The class includes learning the basic barre sequences to warm the body up, center work, which includes selected repetition of barre steps that help the student to learn balance, transference of weight and port de bras.

The adult jazz class is offered both in-person and live-online over Zoom.

This Jazz class will go through the decades of jazz styles in the United States in order to understand how this dance form has developed. The class will also focus on the component of theatre jazz and pop culture in the American jazz dance continuum.

Adult ZOOM Ballet is designed to allow adults interested to taking classical ballet from the comfort of their own personal space. The class is heavily focused on exercises done at the barre. Therefore, it is necessary for students interested in this class to have a secure firm surface to hold onto while participating in this class. Some attention will be given to center work; however, this will not include large locomotor movement or large jumps. Students should also expect some stretching and conditioning exercises as part of this class.
