Dance Fremont offers drop-in intermediate/advanced ballet classes 5 times weekly, as well as weekly sequential courses in beginning ballet, beginning modern, and intermediate ballet. Classes begin with a thorough warm-up and culminate in dynamic center floor work. We emphasize learning using imagery and anatomical information help the adult student to understand clear movement mechanics, allowing exploration in style and musicality. Our caring and experienced instructors joyfully welcome people of all ages, shapes, and identities to our studio.
Beginning Ballet and Modern Classes
Have you always wanted to dance, but something kept you back? Did you dance when you were a kid and have spent years meaning to get back into it? We joyfully welcome people of all ages, shapes, and sizes to discover or rediscover how fun and fulfilling ballet can be! Trying new things is hard, so we prioritize a safe, supportive, and encouraging environment, and our instructors are caring and experienced.
Our weekly sequential adult classes span the school year (36 weeks) however, students may join the class mid-year or take the class for just a portion of the year. Fall classes start September 11, 2023 and registration is open! Please register prior to the start of the session.

Intermediate/Advanced Open Ballet
Our drop-in classes are for ages 15 to 99, and are geared toward Intermediate to Advanced and Professional dancers. Our instructors each bring a unique style and approach to class, offering personal feedback and thoughtful concepts in a warm, supportive atmosphere. You will dance to live piano from our talented staff accompanists! Open classes focus on healthy placement with an emphasis on style, playful musicality and expression.
Our open classes are held on a drop-in basis, but we ask that you register ahead of time for the class you wish to attend. We accept card, cash, and check payments at the front desk. Students may pay on a class-by-class basis or purchase class cards for discounted rates on advance purchases of 5, 8, 10, 20, or 30-classes. If the cost is prohibitive, we offer a pay-what-you-can option. Just ask at the front desk. We want you here!
We do not have a specific dress code for our beginning registered classes or intermediate/advanced open classes. We recommend that dancers wear close-fitting clothing so that their teacher may see their skeletal alignment. Many dancers wear a leotard or tight-fitting shirt with leggings, tights, or athletic pants. We prefer dancers to wear ballet slippers for ballet classes, and do not permit street shoes or shoes with black or white soles on the dance floor as they leave marks. Please leave large jewelry pieces at home, and ensure that hair clips and pins are securely attached; these items can be hazardous in class.
