Adult Core Ballet

A laid-back class for adults who wish to begin or continue the study of classical ballet. Classes will consist of barre exercises that focus on proper alignment and technique. Proper French vocabulary will be introduced and used throughout each class.

Center work will include floor workout to strengthen the core and stretching exercises, to foster leg strength and flexibility. Center work will also introduce elementary steps, simple jumps, turns, and choreography to the student. No prior experience is necessary. Classes will be tailored to each individual's skill level.

Adult ballet attire: comfortable clothes that you can easily move in (nothing too baggy) and ballet slippers.

For ages 18 and up.
