Open Intermediate/Advanced Ballet Classes

For Summer 2017 Open Class schedule and information, click here.

Ages 15-Adult

(Students under 15 years of age must have permission from the director.)

Classes are taught with an emphasis on learning. Imagery and anatomical information help the adult student to understand clear movement mechanics. Classes begin with a thorough warm-up and culminate in well-prepared, dynamic center floor work.  Open classes also focus on correct placement with an emphasis on style and musicality.  Our open classes are held on a drop-in basis and do not require students to pre-register to attend. 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.  Single class entry is $18.00 ($18.36 if paid with a credit card). Click here to see rates for our multi-class cards.

A minimum of four students must be present to run a class and classes are subject to a 30-student maximum. Open classes run on our School Year Calendar; click here for Dance Fremont’s holiday closures and breaks.

We have a special gift for our dancers this holiday season: Vivian Little & Paula Peters will return to teach morning open classes the week of December 18-23! Vivian will teach M/W/F, and Paula will teach T/Th/S.

Then on Friday 12/29, Leigh-Ann Cohen-Hafford will boost you into the New Year with a bonus open class!

All classes will be at 10 am, and there will be no evening Wednesday class.
