Absolute Beginning Ballet: this class assumes that you know nothing about ballet and teaches you the basic steps at barre, in center, and across the floor. It’s also a great class to start with if you’ve danced previously but it’s been a long time. Or if you’re a more advanced dancer who wants to really focus on your technique. Classes usually have students at a range of levels. It’s a supportive environment with instruction tailored to each individual.
