OPEN CLASS: in-person for 2022!

Open class is on hiatus until we move into our space in Greenwood. We are currently planning on phasing in a limited schedule the week of September 19 or 26, and expanding to our full schedule as soon as we can.

Sign up for our mailing list at the bottom of the page to stay in the loop on summer open class dates and locations!

Zoom class is currently suspended.


Open Intermediate/Advanced Ballet Classes

Ages 15-Adult (Dance Fremont 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. 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.
