Adult Dance Program

(Accompanist Tom Farrell)

If you took ballet as a child and still remember the feeling of leaving your worries behind and simplifying the world to just the music, your movement and your breath, this is your way back again. Heather Berest offers adult ballet and modern that caters to adults returning to dance after “many” years.




Class Descriptions

Adult Ballet class begins with a 45 minute barre which is a high quality workout by itself. It can used by all to build strength and stamina. The class is 1¼ hours to live piano accompaniment. It progresses to a 45 minute center which consists of an adagio, pirouette, moving, petit allegro, grand allegro and reverence.

Adult Lyrical class is a fusion of ballet and jazz. The movement is specifically inspired by the lyrics or music, illustrating the emotion of the particular piece. It is class adults love for its creativity and emotion.

Adult Modern class is combined with the more advanced teen students  of the Berest Dance Center. It begins with a Graham floor warm-up and progresses to center and traveling combinations with a strong influence of the Paul Taylor style. The class is  1 hour in length to live piano accompaniment.
