These classes are arranged in a way that is beneficial for all participants, even with little or no experience. Offered for All Ages and Levels, Beginner Ballet Technique Classes offer a great and fun way to get into shape through musicality and artistry, all provided in the graceful and elegant art of classical ballet. This class will teach foundational knowledge of classical ballet positions and port de bras, alignment, full body coordination, terminology, and musicality.

BalletCNJ’s Dance Conditioning and Toning classes are an amazing way to work on toning and strengthening all areas, while gaining full body coordination and control.

Dress Code

BalletCNJ does not enforce a dress code for Open/Adult classes. Most of the students do wear the traditional leotard and tights with warm-ups (ballet skirts, leggings,  leg warmers, etc.). As long as you wear something that is form fitting and allows for free range of motion you will do great!


We do, however, highly recommend for you to have the proper shoes. Flat ballet slippers made of canvas will do fine and are more comfortable if you are just starting out.


We do offer an Open/Adult Pointe options as well. Proper fitting pointe shoes are essential if taking class en pointe. If you are a beginner or have never done it before, talk to the teacher to assess your readiness and how to go about getting pointe shoes.

Excellent ballet school! Very few places offer open adult classes, and the teachers are so welcoming and talented in their instruction. I feel that I have grown so much as a dancer, could not ask for more professional, amazing teachers! Also, the facilities are lovely and the school is very well run as a business. Overall, just a wonderful school for dancers of different ages!
