Adult students in class

The Adult Program is designed for adult students of all levels of training, from former dancers and professionals to adults who are interested in learning ballet for the first time.

Correct body placement, alignment, strength and flexibility are emphasized in each class. This is an open program offering single classes to all adults. Classes may be paid for per single class, or students can purchase class cards if they plan to study on a regular basis. At this time, registration will be required of all students before taking classes.

Classes and Schedules

Class schedule is effective September 8, 2020 through September 5, 2021 and is subject to change without notice.

Ballet Barre via Zoom

Start your day with a Ballet Barre Zoom class! It is fun and perfect for all fitness levels. Sculpt your way to a dancer body in the comfort of your home. Ballet Barre classes are a way to achieve a dancer’s physique without having to learn choreography. Classes feature exercises using the ballet barre that tone your legs, lift your glutes and strengthen your upper body core. The class ends with a stretch to help you relax and to lengthen your muscles.

Zoom Ballet Barre Cards for $100 for 10 classes. Cards expire after 6 months.
Call City Ballet School at 858-274-6058 between the hours of 9am – 1pm or 3pm – 7pm to purchase your Ballet Barre Zoom class card.
