Class Descriptions

BRT’s Open Program ballet classes are intended for indivduals who enjoy dance movement and appreciate the demands of ballet technique. These classes continue year-round and are available on a drop-in basis.

Adult Ballet I is structured as a high beginning-intermediate level and designed to incorporate those who have some knowledge of ballet, those who have had dance as a child and wish to begin again, and the first time dancers who have completed the Absolute Beginning Ballet program (see the below for details on this program).

Adult Ballet II classes are for students who are comfortable with the ballet curriculum and can move easily through the barre and center.

Stretch & Strength:  Taught and designed by Alex Ossadnik this class provides a low impact full body workout that strengthens and stretches all major muscle groups. No dance experience needed!

Ballet Mat:  Taught by Michelle Davis this class was originally intended for injured dancers but is used by anyone looking to build core strength in an artistic environment. It consists of ballet exercises adapted for non-weight bearing and is combined with Yoga and PT for a hybrid workout that will keep you fit even if injured and help reach greater levels of strength. For levels CI through Adults.

BRT Home Studio Recommendations

Please make sure your Zoom username is your real name (student or parent) and not a generic name i.e. “iPad 2”. This is for attendance and security purposes.

Internet Speed 
Run an internet speed test in the room you plan to use as your at-home studio. You can do this HERE. If speeds are slow, Zoom will freeze, and dancers may have difficulty fully participating in class. Wifi extenders can be purchased to help remedy this issue.  

 

Adult Open Division Dress

  • Our instructors need to see student’s body lines in order to make corrections and ensure that everyone is dancing safely.  Leotards, tights, and skirts are suggested, but are not mandatory.  Tighter-fitting yoga clothes are also options.  Gentlemen, dance belts must be worn.
  • Proper flat ballet slippers must be worn in the Adult Ballet Classes.  
  • As a courtesy to BRT students and instructors, please use deodorant.
