Adult Classes

The Adult Program (ages 15+) offers evening classes in ballet and repertoire. These classes are designed for teens and adults who are interested in an open enrollment, on-going training program at the beginner or intermediate level. Class work strengthens and tones the body, increases flexibility, musicality, balance, and coordination in the context of dance movement.
