Amazing!!!
Absolute Beginner Ballet with Minami
Very fun atmosphere with two studios! Intro to ballet was great for my first time to learn the positions and terms. Will also try one of the workout classes next!
Absolute Beginner Ballet with Minami
Good for beginners but even if you’ve danced before it’s good to review proper technique. Try it! It is a slower class but I find this really gets you to feel every movement
Absolute Beginner Ballet with Minami
I have never taken ballet in my life and I loved this class, Minami is great at explaining and teaching!
Absolute Beginner Ballet with Eric
Eric was really sweet and made it a safe space for a total beginner like me.
Absolute Beginner Ballet with Minami
The teacher was great and encouraging. The class was really easy so if you’ve taken ballet before, maybe consider taking a higher level class.
Absolute Beginner Ballet with Minami
If you have any previous ballet experience this class will probably be a little too easy for you as it is fairly basic barre work. The main studio is beautiful and open but the absolute beginner class is held in a smaller studio which doesn’t have mirrors (so you are unable to check your form). Minami was a great instructor, very positive and friendly. I’ll definitely be back but will probably choose a more challenging class next time :)

Loved this class, Minami is great. She helped a lot with corrections and we did a really wide variety of steps. Really good class!
Absolute Beginner Ballet with Minami
This class was great, I loved it. The sub, Eric, was very friendly and encouraging, and both studios are beautiful.
Absolute Beginner Ballet with Minami
The class is a bit challenging but the instructor helps to break things down so it's easy to follow along
Absolute Beginner Ballet with Minami
This should be called "Ballet 1" as you don't need to be an absolute beginner. Great teacher, I really enjoyed the class. Don't expect a workout
Absolute Beginner Ballet with Minami
A nice introduction to ballet. There seemed to be a lot of regulars so not everyone is an absolute beginner, but still a fun class.
Absolute Beginner Ballet with Anna
It didnt exactly feel like it was for beginners. Also when we did work at the barre I could follow the teacher when I faced one way and when I turned around to face the other way I had no idea what I was doing and I wasnt the only one. If the teacher went in front of us every time that would be helpful. Otherwise, I did quite like it!
Absolute Beginner Ballet with Minami
Minami was very encouraging and the small class size is a plus. Will definitely be going back.
