Larry says, "It’s been life-changing for me. I get to share an activity with someone who is as passionate as I am about dancing. Our lessons have given me confidence not only on the dance floor, but also given me confidence in my daily life as well. I have always loved to dance, but I really didn’t know the first thing about it. Caitlin has a wonderful personality and teaches me the proper technique of each dance, which has made our lessons together fun and informative. Not only is Caitlin helping me on the dance floor to reach my goals, she’s given me exercises that I can do at home to help with some of the weaknesses I have in dancing. I cannot thank Caitlin enough for all the fun and excitement we’ve had. I look forward to going to the top in my dancing career with Caitlin!" Read more

Ben H. says, "Julian did a hip-hop dance lesson for my previous employer's wellness program. It was extremely fun and everyone who came loved it. Julian has a very fun engaging personality, and even though this was a pretty basic lesson (as requested), I still feel like I myself personally learned a lot in that short session. " Read more

I have been dancing and teaching competition level dancers at a highly regarded dance studio in Minnesota for over 20 years. During my time as a dancer, I competed at the highest level, receiving National awards. The highlights of my career were appearing in Super Bowl XXVI halftime and four episodes of the nationally televised talent show, Star Search. I was also a dancer and coach for three years for the NBA Timberwolves Performance Team. I am a very effective coach and teacher who loves working with kids to help them quickly gain technical skills, particularly turns, leaps, jumps and elements of performance. I teach contemporary, jazz, lyr

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?

He is so full of life and passion! Even if I just saw him in the hallway, he’d always be dancing. Jahneal inspired me to express myself and be proud of who I am. Also, he always made me feel like my existence was important and that he was happy to see me. Jahneral made such a strong, positive impact on my life and I will never forget him.
