Build up your technique – and lower body strength – as you progress through our multi-level classical ballet program.
Indicated on each class title/description. Ranges from Absolute Beginner (Basics) to Advanced (Ballet III).
Tights or form-fitting leggings/pants (nothing baggy), and ballet slippers or socks.
Unlike many of our other classes that use dance as a fun vehicle for cardio conditioning, you’ll have the opportunity to work on technique — and some serious lower body strength — in our progressive program. Start from scratch in Ballet Basics or find your place in one of our more advanced levels.
Our expert ballet director, Beverly Holskin, brings a fun, straightforward approach and more than 20 years of teaching experience to our diverse, welcoming student community. If you took ballet in years past, send her a note and she’ll be happy to direct you to the class that’s best suited to your experience. Here’s a breakdown of our levels:
The barre purposefully limits the size of the classes so our instructors can give individual attention to everyone. If you want an extra challenge, just ask!
Appropriate attire is necessary for all ballet classes. We recommend Baum’s Dancewear (ask about the Philly Dance Fitness discount!) or Discount Dance Supply for affordable options.
Love BALLET? You might also enjoy POINTE or 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.
