About Event

An Experience You

Will Never Forget

An intensive program designed for adult dancers who have the passion and desire to train with master teachers in a safe, encouraging environment.

 

This program will be focused on classical ballet training & classical variation coaching with special sessions to expand your knowledge of this art form.

 

Performances will be held each Saturday.

Who is this for?

✔️ Adult dancers who love the art of ballet and the community that it brings together

 

✔️ Adult dancers who are ready to be taken seriously by teachers and programs

 

✔️ Adult dancers ready to push their boundaries and perform on stage

This is not for…

❌ Casual dancers looking for drop-in classes; this program has an intense, full-day schedule

 

❌ Absolute beginners who do not know all ballet terminology (see below for self-assessment)

 

 

The Experience
