Open Adult Program
The Georgia Ballet School offers a variety of opportunities for adults who have always loved, admired, or wondered about studying dance. Adults gain joy, flexibility and strength through our Open Adult Classes. Designed to accommodate wide ranges of age and physical skill, classes in ballet and related dance styles are challenging and enjoyable. All are welcome, and the only requirement is the desire to dance.
Open Adult Classes take place in the professional studios of The Georgia Ballet and are taught by experienced faculty members and performing artists in a fun, stress-free atmosphere. Full-term registration is not required for Open Adult Classes as they are offered on a drop-in basis. No placement class is required for the Open Division.

Adult Ballet is structured to provide students with a firm foundation in ballet technique and vocabulary in a series of steps. Exercises include fundamental barre work as well as basic turns and jumps. These are then combined in simple movement phrases. Students vary from first time ballet students to those returning to ballet after years away and are looking for a “refresher” course.
Advanced/Professional Ballet allows technically proficient students the ability to strengthen their skills in a complex and challenging class which emphasizes the complete range of classical ballet technique, taught at a professional level. Classes include adagio, complicated turns, grand allegro, and pointe work.
usually taught by The Georgia Ballet's Artistic Director
