Ballet is forever. It embraces not only the young but adults of all ages.

NEW CLASSES ADDED! (Summer ONLY) 

The PDT Conservatory offers adults ballet classes 6 days a week.  Contemporary dance in the Horton technique is open to adults, as is Jazz, Hip-hop and Pilates.  Everyone is welcome, whether a seasoned dancer, a beginner testing the ballet waters or someone who just wants to keep fit.

Our weekday classes are held in the morning and in the early evening, convenient for those coming from work.  And on Saturdays we have three adult classes that cover three level skill


Adult Division

Ballet classes are designed for all adults, whatever their skill level, and are conveniently scheduled for those who work during the day.  Some of our adult students, we are happy to say, have been dancing with us for decades.  Adult classes are open to students 14 years of age and older.
