Whether you took ballet as a child, have taken ballet in the recent past or have never done a single step of ballet, this level is right for you!

The class is comprised of several sections beginning with a warm up at the barre. Center work starts on the floor with exercises that stretch and strengthen your muscles, followed by combinations of steps in the ballet vocabulary. The class also always includes traveling steps so students really dance. An accomplished pianist accompanies every class, allowing for a wonderful flow to the lesson. Join us now!

Only full semester registration gurantees your place in the class.
