About this class

This beginner level is for adults who have a basic understanding of the foundations of ballet. These concepts are incorporated into a full ballet class with exercises at the barre, in the center and moving across the floor. The core emphasis of this level will be on understanding and improving proper alignment, posture, rotation, and flexibility. Dancers will also expand their ballet vocabulary while learning new movements and positions.

I love Stephanie SO much. The studio itself isn’t the most updated, but it has true character. It also has a lot of fans and a noisy AC, but honestly, the energy in the class made it worthwhile for me to want to come back :)
