Ballet Classes

Dive into the graceful world of ballet with classes led by none other than Indiana Woodward, the principal dancer at the renowned New York City Ballet and co-founder of Grace & Form

A full class consists of a ballet barre and ballet center. The ballet barre is the cornerstone of ballet training, where dancers utilize a stationary handrail for support while engaging in a series of exercises to warm up, strengthen, and refine their technique. This segment focuses on fundamental movements, from pliés to tendus, providing a solid foundation for the intricacies of ballet. In ballet, the ballet center is the segment of a class where dancers move away from the barre to engage in exercises and sequences that develop balance, turns, jumps, and artistry without the support of the barre. We have both elements of class filmed separately so you can pick and choose to create the perfect combo. We also have our paired recommendations based on themes that cross over from barre to center.
