Class Frequency

Adult Ballet: Your attendance frequency is what feels right to you. Whether one, two three or more classes a week, we can accommodate you.  If your objectives are to either return to the dance you knew and loved, or advanced training and/or personal fitness,  we recommend that you take two classes per week.  These two classes could be two ballet classes ideally, or one ballet and/or one contemporary, jazz or hip-hop class. Mixing dance styles will give you, excellent cross-training and you'll see results much faster. However, if time or budget restraints mean one class per week, then we will help you make the most of your class.  E

Pointe Class Note: Students must take at least 2 ballet technique classes per week to be eligible for the pointe class.
