Ballet Basics

Step up to the barre in this absolute beginner program.

If you’ve always been intrigued by ballet but never had the chance to take classes as a kid, we’ve got the perfect introductory program to help you stock your “ballet toolbox.” Learn all the fundamentals of ballet: positions, vocabulary, foundational steps, placement, musicality and more.

adult-beginner-ballet-ii-3This class serves as a precursor to our Beginner Ballet I program, building up an understanding and practice of classical ballet in a fun and straightforward approach. Like our longer ballet classes, you’ll be focusing on technique rather than fitness — though you might still get a bit of a lower body workout in the process!

If you like our Ballet Basics program, you may also wish to check out our other Ballet classes, Pointe and Pre-Pointe small-group sessions, or our Barre classes (BalletEXTREME and Barre Fit), which combine ballet, core work and strength conditioning into a workout that anyone, regardless of dance experience, can do.

If you’re looking for more personal attention, private lessons are also available. Prices range from $70 per hour for one student to $85 for a semi-private lesson for up to four students. Simply contact us to schedule your lesson or learn more!
