Adult Ballez is a ballet class that strives to re-imagine what ballet can be, who it can be for, and how it can be done. Adult Ballez values connection, emotional engagement, joyful dancing, inclusive play, and multiple definitions of virtuosity. Adult Ballez presents all the typical exercises of a ballet class in an evolving practice of mutual growth and expanding circles of connection. We will warm-up at the barre, then move to center to turn, jump, and (often) practice non-binary partnering.

Classes are open to all queers and allies. Socks are useful, ballet shoes allowed but not required, beginner to advanced levels are ALL WELCOME.

Adult Ballez Class is also available as a workshop, please contact if you want to bring this class to your school or organization!
