Adult Program

Dance Fremont offers drop-in intermediate/advanced ballet classes 4 times weekly, and weekly sequential courses in beginning ballet, beginning modern, and beginning-intermediate ballet. Classes start with a thorough warm-up and culminate in dynamic center floor work. We emphasize learning using imagery and anatomical information to help the adult student 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 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. Summer class sessions are 10 weeks long. Please register prior to the start of the session. Use the links below to learn about our class offerings and enroll in a beginning adult class. If you are unsure about which class to take, email us at to schedule a trial class. We look forward to dancing with you!

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. 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 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!

Class Attire

We do not have a specific dress code for our adult classes, but we recommend that dancers wear comfortable, close-fitting clothing so that their teacher may see their skeletal alignment. Many dancers wear leotards and tights, or athletic tops with leggings or athletic pants. We 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.

Recommended Footwear
Ballet: canvas or leather ballet slippers
Modern: bare feet
Jazz: jazz shoes, ballet slippers, or bare feet
