I took some ballet classes when I was in college and was looking for a beginner class for adults. The class wasn't too difficult but it wasn't too easy either. I liked that the instructor kept on repeating the basic terms and clarifying different positions. I would take this class again!

I loved that the class was not too big and I was able to get individual attention. It was geared towards beginners but not too basic, simple choreography and movements were mixed in. 90mins flew by fast! Recommend this class!

Anna is a fantastic instructor! She was patient with beginners, clear in her directions, and gave individual attention to everyone in the class. I felt comfortable during the entire class and thoroughly enjoyed the experience!
