Adult Ballet class students are shown above executing a soutenu a-la-seconde, as they warm up for the evening's Greenwood-Phinney Art Walk performances. Are there ballet classes near me, is not the only question to ask yourself when considering dance schools. Also ask, who has the best ballet classes for adults in Shoreline and Seattle?
Ballet Classes For Adults: An Overview Of Ours
Our ballet classes for adults in Shoreline and Seattle include barre, center, stretching, adagio and allegro work and focus on both the physical and an intellectual understanding of how and why each movement should be executed.
Most of our Seattle and Shoreline Ballet classes are offered as a twice a week class as it is strongly recommended as a minimum for the study of Ballet. It truly expedites the muscle memory allowing dancers to progress much more quickly.
If you can only attend once a week, it is recommended you take one of the single weekend classes. However, if one weekday class is all that works for you, we would still love to have you. Just expect that there will be a difference in technical ability from some of the other students at the end of the session.
All adult ballet classes include warm ups, technique, and combinations across the dance floor for a good cardio finish.
You'll develop strength, flexibility, grace, balance, poise and musicality along with a comprehensive understanding of the principles of ballet terminology and technique.
Our ballet class for beginners places you in classes with other beginners at or very close to your proficiency level.
"ballet classes for adults...wonderful"
Denise S. Wrote in a Google Review: "American Dance Institute has wonderful ballet classes for adults. I danced here off and on for several years and every class I took was excellent. The staff is super friendly and professional but approachable. I started out a beginner and felt welcome from day one. I was out of shape, believe me, but still felt loved and accepted by all. I moved out of the neighborhood to a new job in a new town and I miss ADI. Come to San Francisco!"

What does an excellent ballet school look like?
ADI's Seattle and Shoreline ballet classes for adults cater to new-beginning, intermediate and advanced ballet students. Come learn, dance and experience the joy that only dancers know.
- It has non-competitive ballet classes where everyone competes with themselves and not fellow students. No competition makes for friendly teachers and classmates so you will always feel welcome and accepted.
- It's a ballet class where the teacher understands that the pace of the class has to be good for you and knows how to balance that pace for everyone.
- Dance studios have 'sprung' wood floors that 'give' to protect knees, feet, and ankles. Run away from studios with padding & hardwood over concrete. The standard padding inserted between concrete and hardwood does not 'give' enough to protect dancer's feet. And heaven forbid, run, run away from dance studios with just concrete or linoleum on floors. Ignoring this advice can result in serious early injury to knees, ankles, and feet.
- A school with accommodating school policies, like a 100% money back guarantee if you don't like your class for any reason, your health or schedule changes unexpectedly.
- Expert dance teachers who know how to give you personalized attention so you can learn faster and progress further.
