“You’re never too old to try something new or to dream a new dream.” C.S. Lewis had it right. This class is designed for the dancer without experience. It’s also a perfect fit for students who danced when they were younger, but have had a break. Anne will lead you through barre technique and basic center work. Alternating sessions include learning variations from your favorite ballets!

  • Classes meet Thursday nights at the 7:45 PM (check schedule for dates!)
  • Sessions are currently virtual and will be posted here as they’re scheduled.

Dance classes at Move It are for you whether you've been out of class for a while or just always wanted to try a dance class. At the foundation of Move It is ballet (see Our Story). The focus, determination, and strength it takes to be a ballet dancer is what gave rise to barre fitness. There's really nothing like it.

We offer beginner ballet classes for adults in a studio environment that is created just for you. As cute as tutus are, these classes are about learning ballet exercises and technique. If you've taken barre fitness, you'll gain a new perspective on ballet barre exercises. If you haven't taken barre, don't worry, our teachers specialize in working with beginners!

Offering a community for adults who are interested in dance has taken many forms over the years. In additional to ballet, we offer periodic series in modern dance, jazz, and tap. Ballet is now being offered online through our virtual platform and runs in multiple week series so that you can progress significantly.

We all deserve to express ourselves creatively. Move It is about doing that through dance-based fitness classes and dance classes alike. We don't expect you to come in ready to audition for World of Dance. The essence of dance is joy. And that's what we want for you.
