Adult Ballet Drop-In Class - Ongoing - (posted by Dance with Heidi)

In this drop-in ballet class we will work on our technique through barre exercises, center work and moves across the floor. Ballet is for everybody/every body. If you think you’re too stout, lanky, tall, short, old, stiff, or whatever you might criticize yourself about, to do ballet…you can stop now.

I teach this class for adults. Some of my students are former child dance students who have been on a break for 5, 10 or more years. Many are adults who never had either the courage or opportunity to dance when they were young. Class is paced for beginners, but all levels of experience are welcome.

When: Tuesdays 7:00pm-8:00pm
Where: Kanopy Dance (341 State St, 2nd Floor)
Cost: $15 drop-in (passes available at discounted rates)
