Adult Novice Ballet

Thursdays | 7:00 PM – 8:15 PM
10 Week Session |
$195 per workshop

This class is an introduction to ballet with an emphasis on body alignment for proper execution of ballet steps. The student will learn the very basics of ballet technique in the structure of a traditional ballet class.

The class begins with basic barre work with instruction taught slowly so the student understands the importance of muscle control, development, and technique. Center exercises follow to reinforce barre work, and include coordination of whole body and small jumps. The class ends with a traditional révérance.

The completion of at least two Novice workshop sessions is recommended to ensure student confidence before moving into Elementary Ballet.

This class is a continuation of Novice Ballet. Students new to our Adult Program may begin this class only with a minimum of two Novice Workshops terms or former training with secure basic level.

Elementary Ballet’s class structure follows a progressive and methodological system of training, repeating and building onto basic ballet technique. Barre work may include stretching and conditioning exercises to increase strength and flexibility. Simple exercises are added in center work to promote balance and preparation for pirouettes/turns. Combining two or more steps in an exercise increases level of difficulty and challenge. The class ends with a traditional révérance.
