ADULT BALLET CLASSES

After taking adult ballet classes at various schools in New York and Connecticut, I was eager to try classes at the Greenwich Conservatory of Classical Ballet. Unlike in other schools, where I could barely keep up with the routines—never even learning how to hold my arms properly, because I was always focused on my leg movements—training at GCCB has helped me in just a few months to build a strong foundation and execute ballet moves properly.

Our credentialed instructors are currently teaching classes for adults ages 18 and up. The benefits of classical ballet training are ongoing and include: postural control, flexibility, strength, agility, improved concentration/cognitive functioning, musicality and spatial awareness. More information about the benefits of adult ballet can be found in a variety of sources online.

GCCB'S ADULT BALLET CLASSES are currently held three times per week (starting September 15th and run through December 15th) and are user-friendly for all ages and levels of ability. Classes are held at the Greenwich Arts Center, 3rd floor dance studio as well as at the dance studios at Greenwich Academy School and the YWCA Greenwich- check schedule carefully to confirm class location. Adult Ballet Instructors include Mr. Gleidson Hoffman and Miss Nadia Zhivotenko. Click to learn more about our exceptionally qualified & welcoming ballet instructors.

The instructors are always methodical and break down the movements well. We do not rush through a class to include as many moves as possible, but the instructors are careful to pause when needed to explain the intricacies of the movements. I also receive proper corrections in a tactful manner to improve my moves during the classes, which helps me master the technique. I enjoy the enthusiasm, passion, and dedication of the instructors. And, the students are supportive of each other, which creates a great sense of community. If you really want to learn proper technique and have an effective whole-body workout, this school is for you.
