Discover your balance and confidence – whether you are an absolute beginner or a returning dancer, The Washington Ballet offers dance classes designed especially for you. Our classes are designed to promote good technique, strength, and flexibility. They are taught in a welcoming and non-competitive environment. Our adult class faculty have years of experience and will make adaptations to the class work for students either more advanced or behind the level.

All NW classes are held either at the Joseph C. Coleman Studios located at 3308 Wisconsin Ave, NW (above GIANT Food) or at the Main Building located at 3515 Wisconsin Ave, NW. It is important that you check the schedule for class locations. Both locations are near the Cleveland Park and Tenleytown stops on the Metro Red Line, and several buses serve our locations.
