Adult Ballet

Adult Ballet classes focus on: 

  • Developing creative expression

  • Reducing stress and anxiety 

  • Building confidence and self-awareness 

  • Improving posture, flexibility, and balance

  • Increasing mobility and core strength 

Enjoy a single day for the month, or enroll in the full week's worth of classes to double or triple the benefits! Each class provides modifications for adults of all ages and abilities.

New to Ballet? The Thursday class is designed for adults who do not have prior dance training and would like to learn the basics of ballet. This class is also a great class for adults with prior dance training who would like a refresher course and to ease back into the studio!

Previous Dance Training? The Wednesday class is designed for adults who have been taking the beginner ballet class and feel ready for new challenges, or for adults who may have had prior dance training but have not taken dance in a while. The Saturday class is designed for adults who have a more extensive dance background and for those who are ready to move!

Don't hesitate to email education@balletarkansas.org if you have any questions about which class may be the best fit for you! Masks are recommended but not required for Summer classes. Recommended dance attire includes ballet shoes and form-fitting athletic attire or traditional ballet attire (leotard, tights or t-shirt and tights, with or without warmups).
