What we're about

Whether you danced a little when you were young, danced all the way through your teens, are still going strong, or have no idea what the heck a pas de bourree is, I offer multiple level ballet classes designed for any adult seeking the wonderful benefits of a real ballet workout! Come out and try something new, or revisit the basics to improve your current technical level. You'll get the satisfaction you deserve through dance in a laid back respectful environment.

Plie the Night Away! (Beginning Ballet)

Location visible to members

$15.00

**This class moves at a faster pace and so is best enjoyed by those who already have a little previous ballet experience (please read "SPECIAL NOTE" below)

Join me Tuesday nights for some ballet fun and a chance to get to know some really great people! In this class, we will continue to fine-tune our technique while adding more complex patterns and choreography.

**SPECIAL NOTE: This class is open to anyone who wishes to attend, however, those students with very little to absolutely zero ballet experience will most likely benefit more from starting in my BALLET LOWDOWN (BASIC BALLET) classes first. Everyone learns at a different pace, just know you have options! :-)

Here are a few more details to get you started:

COVID RELEVANT UPDATES REGARDING CLASS STRUCTURE:
I am so pleased to be able to have face to face classes again! It has been much too long! However, as expected, there are a few guidelines we need to adhere to before we can proceed.

1). Capacity is much more limited than before resulting in a need for each student to pay in advance. Every class for the time being is $15, and no class cards are available at this point in time.

2). Since I do have some students who are not affiliated with the MeetUp website, I have allotted a specific number of RSVP's for this site, and a few for non MeetUp folks. If you want to attend class, but see the RSVP's have already been taken here on the site, feel free to email me at [masked] to see if I have any additional slots available. All protocol and pricing is the same regardless of how you RSVP.

3). Everyone will be required to wear masks and maintain social distancing protocol of 6ft between you and another dancer.

4). We will continue to use the general, every day understanding that if you have a fever, or feel under the weather in any way, you are to stay home.

ATTIRE:

You do not need to run out and purchase any ballet attire for your first lesson. Form-fitting work out clothing (like something you would wear to a yoga class) will be perfectly fine...use what you have. Baggy clothing, however, is NOT appropriate for ballet. Baggy clothing prevents the instructor from being able to view your body line, ensuring you are always in alignment and doing the movements accurately and safely. As far as shoes are concerned, you may dance in socks or just your bare feet for your first lesson. Once you are totally certain that ballet is something you'd like to continue with, I will be more than happy to discuss where to buy ballet attire!!

PAYMENT:
I will need to receive your payment to hold your RSVP slot. Please note, if you pay for class and then cancel your Reservation less than 24 before the event, you will NOT be granted a refund. *PayPal is set up on this site, and should you have any trouble just message me or email me at [masked]

(*As a side note, I would be so grateful if you use the "friends and family" option when submitting your payment. This allows all of the $15 to be sent to my account. If you do not choose this option, PayPal automatically takes a percentage off of the payment.)

To minimize any back and forth of monetary transactions, please only RSVP if you really know you will be able to attend class.

PARKING:

There is plenty of free street parking behind the studio on Griffith Park Blvd.
