Adult Division

When it comes to building strength, grace, flexibility and tone, ballet is one of the best physical and mental workouts on the market. Whether you are exploring dance for the very first time or if the studio has felt like a lifelong home, there’s a place for you here. Designed with the needs of the adult dancer in mind, our Adult Division classes allow you to dance your way to health, strength and poise while building community through Cincinnati’s preeminent dance institution. All classes are available on a drop in basis to adults ages 18 and up.

“There are shortcuts to happiness and dancing is one of them.”

Vicki Baum
