Adult Class FAQs

What do I wear for Adult Ballet Class?
It is recommended that Adult Female students wear a leotard, tights, and ballet skirt.  Tight fitted leggings and tank tops work as well.  It is recommended that Adult Male students wear either tights or tight pants and a tank top or t-shirt.  Ballet slippers are recommended for both female and male students but if you are a first time student and want to wear socks before you invest in slippers that is perfectly fine. Please wear whatever you would feel most comfortable moving/dancing/working out in.

I have never taken ballet class before, is this class right for me?
Yes!  This class is truly a beginner ballet class.  Some students have had years of experience and some have never stepped foot in a ballet studio.  The class however is geared towards a true beginner level.

Can I just drop in or do I need to pre-register?
Please just drop in at any time!  You do not need to call in advance or sign up online.  

How much is a single class?  Class card?
Beginning September 22, 2020, all classes will be $10, payable through Venmo @nytheatreballet.

Can I get a refund if I don't use my class card?
Class cards are not refundable, but they never expire.

Is there a Senior Citizen Discount?
Unfortunately we do not have a Senior Citizen Discount but please note we have a very reasonable class fee.

Where are you located?
Our address is 131 East 10th Street, 2nd Floor, but the entrance into the building (St. Marks Church In-the-Bowery) is on 11th Street closest to 2nd Ave.  There is an iron gate that you will enter, follow the small sidewalk that wraps around the church, enter the double doors and take the stairs to the 2nd floor.
