Beginner Ballet Classes

Dancer receiving ballet corrections from teacher Kyle Davey

TUESDAYS 10:00 am – 11:15 am

$28 per class


Discover how to move gracefully in fun and creative beginner ballet classes, full of great tips on correct technique, cues for proper alignment, beautiful music, and expressive movement.


Welcome All, Beginner Dancers!

City Adult Ballet are delighted to welcome all adult dancers with no or little prior ballet experience to our Beginner/Open classes.
The first 15 minutes of your Beginner/Open Ballet class will start with a series of simple barre exercises – focusing on correct placement and good solid technique. This is a great opportunity to work intimately with your teacher to practice transitional steps (various steps leading into another) and ask questions if you are finding something a little tricky!

Our intermediate and advanced adult dancers will join you at the barre, allowing you the opportunity to learn and follow more experienced dancers.
It’s a fun and friendly environment and as well as working at the barre, you will be working on some center work – exercises away from the barre – that will focus on fluid movement to music, with some gentle stretching throughout.

Your teacher will expertly demonstrate every exercise clearly and offer you support, encouragement, and help with technical adjustments every step of the way.

Following your Beginner/Open Ballet class, you should feel inspired, taller posturally, physically stronger, and certainly excited to put all the great tips you’ve picked up towards your next ballet class!

Your teacher is City Adult Ballet principal, Jane Casson.
Jane has been teaching ballet for over 18 years is very passionate about sharing her insights (that she has learned as a professional dancer with The Australian Ballet) along with her talented team of guest teachers with her beginner dancers and is excited to support you going forward in your dance journey.
