This open level class moves at a slower pace and time is taken to break down steps. The focus is on learning correct execution of steps with musicality, building strength and flexibility. Class goes at the pace of those who attend. If you have ever wanted to try ballet, this is the perfect class to give it a try. All levels welcome. For a more advanced class, please consider joining our Intermediate/Advanced Ballet class.
 
Please plan to wear something that allows you to move freely and feels comfortable to you. You might find it most helpful to wear something at least slightly form-fitting, so the instructor can see your form enough to make helpful corrections.  You can wear ballet shoes or bare feet.
