David K. says, "David is an amazing dancer and teacher. He took the time to make sure both my wife and I knew the moves - taking time to focus on each of us. Rather than just teaching choreography, he took the time to teach us the basics so once we got to choreography we were able to see how it fit with the dance and improvise if we forgot something."

Keeman W. says, "Olga has won major national and international professional rising star championships multiple times. She can blend science with art and has a very sharp eye on improving your dancing be it for social or competitions. She got me into the finals of the equivalent of a Pro/Am national final and won other major championships. During a national Pro/Am competition, I kept stepping on her dress which was made for her much teller professional partner. She took out scissors and cut 2" off the thousands of dollars ball gown. That is how dedicated and care she is to her students. We made it to the final after four rounds. Over the last 15 yrs I have seen Olga worked with students of all ages, genders, backgrounds and even professionals with amazing results. Give her a try and you will be glad you did." Read more

Your ballet questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much are ballet classes?

Ballet classes cost $60 to $200+ per month, depending on the studio location, reputation, and the number of classes per week. One class per week typically costs $60 to $70 per month, while the monthly rate for an unlimited class pass is $150 to $250. At many studios, you'll also pay a $25 to $50 non-refundable registration fee.

  • Ballet studios often offer the first class for free to help you decide if you want to register for a full season.
  • Some ballet studios offer a discount when paying in full for the entire season or when registering siblings or more than one child.
  • Private ballet classes cost $50 to $85 per hour on average.

What is ballet?

Classical ballet is a theatrical form of dance using slow, formal body movement techniques, music, and often scenery to tell a story or express a concept or emotion. Contemporary ballet dancing combines classical ballet with ethnic, jazz, and modern dance styles, incorporating faster movements, floor work, and often bare feet instead of ballet shoes.

How long is a ballet class?

While class lengths vary by dance studio, traditional ballet classes typically last 90 minutes, with the first 30 to 45 minutes spent at the barre to warm up the body and the second part of the class focusing on center work.

At what age can you start ballet classes?

Formal ballet classes typically start around age 7 or 8, but many studios offer "pre-ballet" classes for ages 4 to 6, combining games with ballet techniques and steps to create a fun class that helps the child learn some basics while also developing their ability to working together in a group class setting. Some dance studios even offer "baby ballet" or "mommy and me" classes for children as young as 2 or 3 years old.

Can adults take ballet classes?

Yes! You can start taking ballet classes at any age. Most studios offer ballet classes for teens and adults. Learning ballet as an adult offers many benefits, such as developing good posture, physical coordination, mental focus, mental and physical flexibility, self-confidence, and social skills.

What should you wear to a ballet class?

Most ballet studios recommend wearing flexible fabric that hugs tight to the body so your movement is not restricted, and the teacher can clearly see the moves you are making. Traditional ballet studios often require a black leotard, pink tights, and pink ballet slippers for female attire and black tights, dance pants, or dance shorts with a fitted white T-shirt and black ballet shoes for males. Every dance studio has its own guidelines for dance class attire, so be sure to confirm the clothing requirements with your ballet studio before your first class.

How do I choose the best ballet class?

When searching for ballet classes near you, be sure to:

  • Look for a licensed and insured ballet studio that has been in business for 5+ years.
  • Check out their reviews on Lessons.com and Google.
  • Review their website for scheduling information and photos or videos.
  • Read all contract terms before signing.

What questions should I ask when searching for ballet classes near me?

Consider asking the following questions to help you choose a ballet studio:

  • Do you offer classes for an absolute beginner?
  • What is your class schedule?
  • Do I need to register?
  • Do you offer drop-in classes?
  • Can I join a class that has already started?
  • What is your cancellation policy?
  • Do you have any package deals or new student offers?
  • Do you offer private lessons?
  • What forms of payment do you take?
  • Do I need to pay in advance?
  • What type of clothing should I wear to class?
  • What shoes should I wear?
  • Will there be a recital?

Mia K.
David is the most talented ballroom dancer I have ever met! He know's the ballroom like the back of his hand and is an absolutely phenomenal teacher! He taught my husband and I how to salsa and choreographed a whole routine for us to show off to all our friends in less than two weeks! I can't recommend David enough - he's passionate, talented and his patience with new and learners is very comforting. He also works with seasoned dancers and I have personally seen him take them to their next level. As a wedding planner myself, I send all of my couple's looking for first dance lessons to David and their first dance is absolutely magical! Call David now, you won't regret it!

Firstly, Kenwa has so much integrity. Second….she is an amazing teacher - the best - she’s incredibly smart and knowledgeable - and funny - and makes her classes so joyous! She teaches for all levels and really connects with the students one on one. As an event planner and yoga studio manager, I highly recommend Kenwa to teach or to lead an event. She puts her heart and soul into it and that comes through in the experience.
