The Ballet Spot is a dance-based exercise curriculum with a supportive and social atmosphere, offering private coaching and small group classes of no more than 10 people to maximize personal attention.

How It Works:
Our 60-minute classes begin with a full body warm-up at the barre to strengthen and lengthen your muscles. Barre exercises also develop the coordination and stamina necessary to dance across the floor. In the second half of class you will learn to jump, turn, glide, and make graceful lines through space. Our exercises challenge your endurance and your mind. You will leave feeling energized, confident, and accomplished.
Why It's Better:
Ballet dancers have the most beautiful bodies because ballet is without a doubt the best workout there is. It is a technique that has been refined over hundreds of years to maximize beauty and efficiency. You will sculpt your legs, arms, back, and core by using gravity and your own body for resistance. The Ballet Spot always offers new challenges so you will never plateau.
