Dance your heart out in a fun-filled online ballet class that will ignite your love of ballet!
In each online ballet class, you will receive helpful cues, personal corrections, and dance beautiful exercises to inspiring classical music, and fun renditions of your favourite tunes.
These one-hour online ballet classes are ideal for dancers who have a good understanding of the foundations of ballet and are looking to improve their technique and artistry and have lots of fun at the same time!
Your teacher is City Adult Ballet principal, Jane Casson, who has been teaching ballet for over 18 years and is very passionate about sharing her insights and tips (that she has learned as a professional dancer with The Australian Ballet) with her adult dancers online and is excited to support and nurture you going forward in your dance journey.
Dancers can sign up for casual classes at any time throughout the term.
What our dancers say about our online ballet classes:
“Jane is fantastic at accommodating beginners & advanced alike and is wonderful at teaching all elements of dance – not just technical but also artistry and performance skills. Bonus is her selection of funky tunes, which if you are lucky might include piano renditions of the 70s and pop hits! It is always a joy to go to class, whether it’s online or in person. I can’t recommend it enough!”
“Jane’s classes have taken my love of ballet to a whole new level. She knows how to give fun exercises that are challenging but still within your reach, and gives corrections in a warm, encouraging way. She’s got plenty of performance experience under her belt, having previously danced with The Australian Ballet, so you can learn so much about performing and artistry from her generous tips. Highly recommended!”
“Jane’s online zoom classes are some of the best I have ever done. I was back week after week and loved every moment of it.”
“The combination of Jane’s humor with her amazing skill and eye for detail makes you want to come back to class every week.”
“Had a beautiful class (online) with City Adult Ballet.
I haven’t connected with ballet for such a long time, but there was something with this class that clicked. Baby steps 🩰”

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Preparing for your online ballet class?
Before your class starts have a chair, table, or something sturdy (go on, get creative!) to hold on to for your barre work.
If your barre is portable, please have this set up on the left side of your body as you will start at the barre using the right side of your body.
Ideally, have your camera set up so that it is facing you, with as much of your body visible, to allow your teacher to support you throughout your class. Your teacher will offer corrections and helpful cues to help connect your mind and body.
Don’t be shy! Our teachers are incredibly nurturing and will give you lots of support and encouragement.
Our online classes use the Zoom application.
You can manually download the latest version of Zoom for free, here.
How much space will I need in my home to dance?
For your center work, you will require only a small amount of space. Clear enough to move a few paces forward, back, and either side of you.
In each class, you will learn dancey exercises that are tailored and choreographed for smaller spaces.
How long is each online ballet class?
Each online class is 60-minutes. At the end of your class, Jane will stay online briefly to answer any questions you may have.
What should I wear in my classes?
We suggest you wear comfortable, non-restrictive clothing in your class and have your hair lifted up and off your face.
For footwear, you can wear ballet flats or cotton socks.
Do I need anything else?
Other than your Zoom link to access your class, (please check your email notification following your booking) a water bottle nearby, and a sturdy make-shift barre, you are now good to go!
We look forward to seeing you in your studio from home!
