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.
The next adult beginning class will start Tuesday, January 14, 2020.
We strongly advise pre-registering for the class if you are interested. Class size is limited and usually fills up in advance of the session’s beginning.
Class Schedule and Format
Classes will be held twice per week, on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
If interested in putting your name on a waiting list and receiving updates regarding our next session please contact us.
Class Schedule and Format
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.
The Academy of Ballet starts a new adult beginning class typically three times a year. If you missed the start of a class series or are otherwise unable to attend, please send us your name and contact information to be added to a waiting list and you will be informed as soon as the new class starts registration.
The adult program has no dress code. Students are requested to wear leotards, tights and ballet slippers of their choice with their hair fastened securely above their neck.
