Open Division Edmonton

Recreational Ballet

Our Recreational Ballet program is for dancers, ages 6 and up, with little or no previous ballet experience.
A perfect weekly class or introduction to ballet, Recreational Ballet concentrates on ballet structure through beginning barre work, port de bras, centre practice, allegro (jumping) and the development of a dance vocabulary – all in a relaxed and accessible environment for the recreational dancer.

Ballet improves body posture, grace and strength and is the fundamental training that applies to all other dance forms. A professional pianist accompanies each class. Our ballet classes can be a great complement to other recreational activities or a perfect introduction to dance for the older dancer.

Recreational ballet at the School of Alberta Ballet is considered a formal ballet class therefore standardized uniforms are still required. Please consult the Handbook for more information .

Our Intensive Training program is available for dancers seeking a more dedicated practice.
