D. D. says, "As I think upon the dance instruction I’ve received through Uwe and Colleen for over seven years now, it’s with thankfulness for the skills they’ve taught me in social dance (Cross-Step Waltz, Nightclub Two-Step, and East Coast Swing, specifically), and for getting to be part of the dance community they’ve created. I so look forward to Tuesday evenings when I can be back in class and with my regular dance friends there." Read more

Michelle S. says, "To sum it up: Daniel is amazing. He made the experience so much fun, is so kind and easy to learn from and he is so encouraging. My dad and I were taking lessons for my wedding and had such a great time that my fiancé wanted to take lessons too- and we did! None of us had ever really danced before but we came out feeling excited about the wedding dances and not anxious. I can’t wait to show everyone what we can do now! Highly recommended even if you’re a noob like we were and just want to have some fun. " 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 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?

Reviews for Vancouver ballet classes

Recent success stories from people in the Vancouver area.
Richard R.
I would be amiss if I didn’t give a special acknowledgment to Colleen Suzanne. She was able to teach me the steps that I wished to learn while building my confidence. She taught with unfailing kindness, enthusiasm and patience. Uwe and Colleen are a wonderful team; intellect and heart. But I’ve also been in numerous dance classes when Colleen was the primary instructor. She is a fantastic teacher. And my wife and I have had privates with her as well. It is with a sense of gratitude that I say that I would recommend her. If you want to learn to dance and have fun doing it, try Colleen!

The owners are super friendly and know dance. They have some great classes with primo instructors and Lisa will create a custom class and teach it if one does not exist. She is an outstanding teacher, very clear instructions, styling , and tips to really enjoy dancing. She can analyze a problem, find a solution and break it down into doable steps. She also is very kind and fun which certainly helps me as dance is a challenge. I'd highly recommend her for lessons.
