New Adult Ballet Classes Offered

There has been an amazing demand for Adult Ballet classes, so I have added a couple of more classes!

Many adults have danced in the past and wish to take a class again for exercise and enjoyment.  Others have followed exceptional paths in ballet, and have landed here in the Kootenays, craving this artistic outlet.  Still others love to dance and have always dreamed of attending classes.  Luckily, you are never too old to dance!  Our registrants are wonderful people and I am really looking forward to teaching this class.  For those who wanted Adult Ballet but could not attend Thursday nights, there are two new classes being offered.  I hope they work for you!

WEDNESDAY

1:00 – 2:30    Adult Ballet
5:30 – 7:00    Adult Ballet

I am really excited about these adult classes.  So many amazing dancers wish for a class as they get older, (like over 20;)!  I returned to ballet in my late 20’s and never regretted it.  It was a period of my life where I learned how to be a good instructor and how to follow my creativity not just my ability.  Most dancers are in the prime of their lives in their 30’s, and even follow professional careers into their 40’s.  My favourite dance partner was Mary, who was over 65 with a hearing aid but loved dance so much you could taste it!  Her daughter followed her passion and became a dance instructor at Simon Fraser University in the lower mainland of BC.  Dance is for everyone!   Looking forward to next week!
