Adult Classes 2019-2020
Adult classes are a great way for you to get and stay in shape, reduce stress, exercise your brain as well as your body and meet new friends in a relaxed and cordial environment. Classes are for adults of all ages and experience levels and are held from September through June. We are excited about our new class, “Healthy Movement”, for those who wish to focus on achieving optimal whole-body health. It is intended to serve as either a precursor or complement to ballet classes.
Registration is open throughout the year, so it is never to late to come dance with us.
In addition to the benefits of physical movement that improve health and well being for adults, it has been shown that the social aspects are nearly as important as the physical aspects. Students are welcomed to our studio with patience, understanding, empathy and supportiveness. Class sizes are small and every student receives the attention they require. Modifications are available for those with any aches or prior injuries.
Classes are offered in each of four consecutive terms recognizing the importance of commitment, consistency and progression necessary to realize the benefits students are expecting.
Adult Ballet – Beginner
Proper Ballet posture and core muscular development are essential outcomes for students taking this class. Flexibility and fluidity of movement are gained as students develop technique moving to inspiring music. Strength, stamina and confidence acquired in this class will propel your desire to progress into more challenging technique and movement patterns.
Mondays & Thursdays 11:30 am-12:30 pm, Studio 1
Adult Ballet – Intermediate
The fundamentals of posture, core development, flexibility and fluidity are reinforced as students progress through a full, classical ballet barre and gracefully move to the center floor to challenge their balance and coordination with centre practice exercises. The class culminates with a series of more challenging petite enchainments to further stimulate strength, stamina, ease of movement, memory and confidence.
Mondays & Thursdays 10-11:30 am, Studio 1
In this class, students will learn how to do hundreds of small exercises throughout the day to improve their posture. Students will learn where tension is held in their body and how to correctly release, stretch and strengthen various muscles to improve how they move. Students will learn how to keep all of their body parts in alignment while they move and how to move more of themselves, more often to achieve optimal whole-body health.
Mondays & Thursdays 7:30-8:30 pm, Studio 2
