These 90-minute classes are predominantly designed for adults of all ages and abilities. Whether you have absolutely no prior training, or have years of dance experience, we have the perfect class for you. Rekindle your love for dance with four class levels to choose from – Beginners, Level I, Level II and Level III. In addition, some classes will be taught by our very own artists of Singapore Dance Theatre (SDT).


Beginners Level 1 Course is created especially for adult students who do not have prior training in Ballet dance. It is an 8-lesson class taught progressively over 8 weeks which prepare students for higher class levels. Students who would like to attend Beginners class will need to register for the class.

Beginners Level II, Levels I, II & III classes are conducted in an open-class format which do not require students to make prior registration before attending the class. These classes do not follow a progressive syllabus and they are available throughout the year. Students will have the flexibility to attend any class of their choice, regardless of level, day and timing, without having to worry about following up from the previous session.
