Adult Ballet

Adult ballet and jazz training for beginner and intermediate levels.

Whether you are new to dance or a studio veteran, we have the right classes for you.  Conveniently located in the heart of Westchester County, NY, we offer the following classes weekly for adults.

Beginner/Adv. Beginner Ballet with Vija Kemanis
Ballet basics in a positive, encouraging environment. Vija guides the class with full demonstration and detailed verbal cues. Class starts with gentle stretches (bring a mat!), followed by barre and center exercises building technique, strength, flexibility, and memory. Musicality, lyricism, and expressiveness are integral to Vija’s movement.

Intermediate Ballet with Vija Kemanis
A challenging class for the experienced ballet dancer. Class time is divided evenly between barre and center exercises. A gradual, complete warmup at the barre enforces proper alignment, strength, flexibility, memory, and musical precision. At center, combinations are built on the dancer’s expanded vocabulary, technique, musicality, and expressiveness.

Adv. Beg/Intermediate Jazz with Vija Kemanis
Previous ballet or jazz dance experience is recommended. A gradual full-body warmup in the center is followed by progressions (a series of traveling steps across the floor), and finally, a jazz combination lasting several measures of music. Vija choreographs in the styles of modern jazz and lyrical jazz.
