Adult Program

We offer adults a unique experience with an array of ballet classes tailored specifically to their needs.


The Academy of Ballet offers a comprehensive adult program designed to meet the special needs of the adult student. The emphasis here is on toning, strengthening, stretching, and increasing flexibility using classical ballet to achieve these goals.

Along with improving one’s physique, the adult student becomes acquainted with and part of a great art form. The program is based on a curriculum especially designed for adults—starting at the New Beginning Adult level that will introduce the student to basic alignment and movement using music and classical ballet vocabulary extending to the more challenging Intermediate and Advanced levels. Adult students with prior training may join any of the levels for a trial class to determine the level at which they feel most comfortable.

The adult program is a wonderful opportunity for an artistic physical and social activity, in a non-threatening supportive environment.

Our Fall 2017 session of New Beginning Adult Ballet starts August 28th. We strongly advise pre-registering for the class if you are interested. Class size is limited and regularly fills up several weeks in advance of the session’s beginning.

Registration Form

Class Schedule and Format
Classes begin August 28, 2017, and will be held twice a week 8:00 – 9:00p Mondays and Wednesdays.

The class is designed for the adult student who has no formal ballet training or who has studied ballet in the past and wishes to resume training. Emphasis will be on correct placement, body alignment, toning, and stretching. The class will advance at the pace appropriate to the developing skills of the students. Ongoing training in proper ballet technique reshapes body lines, tones muscles, improves balance, strength, grace, and physical coordination in addition to deepening the appreciation of ballet as an art form.
