Adult Class FAQsWhat do I wear for Adult Ballet Class?
It is recommended that Adult Female students wear a leotard, tights, and ballet skirt. Tight fitted leggings and tank tops work as well. It is recommended that Adult Male students wear either tights or tight pants and a tank top or t-shirt. Ballet slippers are recommended for both female and male students but if you are a first time student and want to wear socks before you invest in slippers that is perfectly fine. Please wear whatever you would feel most comfortable moving/dancing/working out in.
I have never taken ballet class before, is this class right for me?
Yes! This class is truly a beginner ballet class. Some students have had years of experience and some have never stepped foot in a ballet studio. The class however is geared towards a true beginner level.
Can I just drop in or do I need to pre-register?
Please just drop in at any time! You do not need to call in advance or sign up online.

Single class price is $12 and a 10 Class Card is $100. The 10 Class Card never expires.
