Registration is Open!

Ballet for Partner Dancers

Wednesdays 7:30-8:30
6 Week Course:  March 9th – April 6th

No partner necessary.  No ballet experience necessary!

Grace, ease of movement, balance & strength.  These are just a few of the skills that can come from ballet that are extremely useful to your partner dancing.

Between them, Sydney & Flouer have a ridiculous amount of experience teaching ballet, contemporary, and partner dances.  

Together they have worked hard to distill the principles from ballet that they think are useful, and have found innovative ways to teach it while simultaneously developing your partner dancing skills.  You will learn some basic ballet shapes & exercises, but in interesting ways that physically connect you to your fellow students.

  • Details:
    • Location:  “The Workspace”  20 W20th st suite 306
