ADULT OPEN CLASSES
With several levels of technique to choose from, the open classes allow you the flexibility to drop in whenever you like. All Adult Classes take place at 1400 Boulevard of the Arts, Sarasota.

Absolute Beginner

Designed for the dance lover who has never taken ballet before. Students will learn good posture, basic arm and leg positions, correct placement and turnout. Students should attend this class before joining the Level 1 Open Class. A great workout and introduction to the world of ballet for everyone.

Level 1
For those students who have already attended Absolute Beginner or have some previous experience and would like to start ballet again after a break. Class will begin at the barre and students will develop their ballet vocabulary and coordination through simple combinations in the centre, along with the concepts of turning and jumping.

Level 2
A more challenging class for students who have attended Level 1 or have had at least two to three years of prior ballet experience. Barre work includes balances in all positions, turning, and incorporating port de bras. Centre work includes the use of the body directions in combinations, with the beginnings of grand allegro (large traveling jumps).

Level 3
The highest level of ballet offered at The Sarasota Ballet School. Barre and centre combinations are more complex, combining more elements and incorporating different musical accents and rhythm. The class will cover all centre work from tendu through to grand allegro and is taught at a faster pace with more combinations of steps. Students must take this class to be eligible for the adult pointe class.

Pointe
Students who are able to complete an Level 3 class or who have previous experience are eligible for pointe work. Pointe work is mainly at the barre, with combinations using both one and two feet. Students are advised to talk to teachers first to see if they are ready for pointe work.
