Adult/Teen Open Ballet

ADULT/TEEN BASIC BALLET (OPEN CLASS)

This  ballet class is focused on good health and safe but challenging movement and allows for individual levels of progress tailored towards each student's personal commitment. 

Each class follows the format of a traditional ballet class and includes barre and center work along with some floor stretches. Dancers will be learning the anatomical basics of technique: alignment/posture, placement, shifting weight, joint articulation, turns, slides, small jumps and ankle strength that will support the dancer through daily activities with substantial protection from injury and can expect to express their inner artist through brief choreographed dances.

Students may wear comfortable exercise clothing like t-shirts and yoga pants or leggings or traditional dance wear, i.e. leotards and tights. Ballet slippers are recommended and available for sale ($18-$25) at the Ballet U office.

From day one -- as an adult beginner who had never taken ballet -- I felt completely accepted, empowered, and supported. The instructors are all absolutely inspiring women who create a warm, inclusive atmosphere in their classes at every level. Every class, I leave feeling more positive, strong, and centered. Whether you are a professional or a complete beginner, you are made to feel like you belong -- and you are challenged to be your own personal best. I can not recommend this studio and these instructors enough!  ~Adult Student
