|Adult Program: Class Descriptions|
Joffrey Ballet School periodically offers seminars/courses for adult students. Unlike most of our classes, these courses do require pre-registration, as they are a series of classes, not a single drop-in class. Please visit our website or call our office (212-254-8520) for more information.
Taking part in an adult Ballet class is good for your body as well as your mind. Besides promoting cardiovascular fitness and posture this introductory class provides a welcoming and friendly class for adults with no prior experience. In this level you will learn the basic positions and concepts of Ballet with exercises at the barre and in the center.
Beginner Ballet II:
This next level will expand upon the foundations of Beginner Ballet. The focus will be on mastering the basic positions and steps while introducing more complicated exercises both at the barre and in the center. We recommend you attend class two times per week
This level is created for any dancer with a basic understanding of ballet technique. This class covers the fundamentals of Ballet technique using simple combinations that allow students to focus on perfecting their technique, musicality, and movement. We recommend you attend class two to three times per week.
The advanced level challenges the student with more complex combinations at the barre and in the center. The student will work on fluidity of movement, balance, and combinations with petit adagio and petit allegro.
This class is for those who have taken ballet classes with our Adult Program faculty, and have been assessed by the Pointe teacher. Readiness for Pointe is determined by each student’s strength and physical development. You must attend an Adult Ballet class prior to taking the Pointe class for the safety of you and your body.

Suitable for all abilities and fitness levels, this high-energy class is a healthy, fun, and challenging approach to achieving a superb physique and superior level of fitness.
