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.
