Established in 1996, Adult Ballet at NBS is now one of the most popular recreational ballet programs in the Greater Toronto Area. Exceptional instruction, live piano accompaniment, state-of-the-art facilities and personal attention are the hallmarks of this program, which caters to adults of all ages and levels.

Adult Ballet draws on the same teaching theories and evolving practices as are applied in the well-established full-time and part-time training programs. Offering seven progressive levels of instruction, the program allows dancers to advance at their own pace through a carefully constructed program of increasingly complex exercises, allowing ample time for learning that is both comprehensive and meaningful. The experience and dedication of NBS’ instructors - all with pedagogical training - continue to be sources of inspiration for the current students and help new students enter the program with confidence and enjoyment.


Starting in spring 2019, NBS Adult Ballet will pilot a limited number of scheduled drop-in classes.
NBS Adult Ballet drop-in classes aim to provide students with a challenging and enjoyable learning environment from some of Canada’s finest ballet instructors. In addition to regular term classes, NBS Adult Ballet drop-in classes offer students the chance to augment their training and build on their skill-set. Currently, NBS is offering drop-in classes for Level II/III, III and IV/V only. Please refer to the class schedule for more details. Drop in classes are available for purchase in a pass of 10 classes. *Class passes must be purchased beforehand and cannot be purchased onsite at 400 Jarvis St.

"There is an air of camaraderie, with a dash of humour and playful curiosity around the set class material. There is equally a mesmerizing sense of focus, determination and clarity of movement. It's evident there is more to the class than vocabulary - based achievements."

— Sarah Lochhead, The Dance Current - Canada's dance magazine
