Adult Classes

With a casual dress code and moderate pace, adult classes are great for those who danced years ago or who are starting for the first time. Dancing can be a fun, enjoyable form of exercise and is a great way to burn a few extra calories and develop muscle tone. 

What Students Are Saying

I love everything about class. I love all the teachers and the friends I have made. I like the relaxed environment. We all want to work hard, but being an adult there’s no pressure. We set our own personal goals and it’s fun to achieve them.
— - Lisa Liptak
I love the teachers! I have made some wonderful new friends, and I learning new and challenging things each time I attend a class
— Trudy Grauzas
I love that I can take ballet seriously in terms of learning and improving but there is not the same pressures or expectations I felt dancing when I was younger. I enjoy the exercise, but I mostly just love ballet and want to have a comfortable environment to dance! The teachers are also wonderful and I love hanging out with my ballet friends!
— Samantha Delonghi
