CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Adult/Teen Classes for ages 13+

Teen and Adult Classes are designed for students who wish to begin or continue dance training for health, recreation or self-enrichment. Students are encouraged to grow as an individual artist and to participate at their own pace. Classes are taught by teachers dedicated to the growth and fostering of ballet as an art form and believe dance contributes to a healthy lifestyle. Classes emphasize overall body conditioning and encourage an aesthetic appreciation of dance.  Classes are accompanied by professional musicians who collaborate with our teachers just as in our pre-professional program.

SPB offers teen students individual placement assessments for beginning to intermediate ballet. Please contact spb@spballet.org or

COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS:

       COMING TO THE STUDIO
       If you do not feel well, please stay home.

  • If you are unvaccinated you will need to wear a face mask. All staff and dancers who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear a face mask into the space and in class.
  • Do not plan to arrive earlier than 10-15 minutes before the start of class. There is no waiting area. Only those taking class will be allowed in the studios during class time.
  • The drinking fountain bottle filler is open. Be sure to bring a water bottle to class. Any water bottles left after class will be discarded.

          ENTERING THE STUDIO

    • Street shoes are to be stored in the cubbies outside of the studios. 
    • Bring your personal belongings into the studio, to your place at the barre, where they are to remain for the duration of class. Please only bring the minimum items necessary for class—avoid large dance bags.
    • Dancers working at portable barres should move their belongings to the back of the room, for center work.
    • Come dressed for class if possible. Bathrooms are used for changing.
    • Please use hand sanitizer or wash your hands before entering the studios.

      COVID PRECAUTIONS under MN Dept. of Health Guides as of June 2021:

      Class sizes:

      • In-studio class size is now 100% capacity
      • All classes will require pre-registration and payment online, no drop-in classes
      • Due to class size restrictions, pre-registered/reserved spaces must be paid for at the time of registration
      • There is a no refund policy  for ‘no show’, if a class spot is reserved

      Overall disinfecting of space/ studios:

      • Studio floors washed down with disinfectant
      • HVAC and Ventilation: Our HVAC was brand new last Fall and is up to current building code. The units on average exchange the air in our spaces at least 3-4 times per hour. If the outside temperatures do not vary more than a few degrees from inside temps, exchange can be as much as 10x per hour.

        Our 22’ ceilings and large floor area give our studios a large cubic volume and air flow is directed across the ceilings and drops down the walls to avoid creating a draft affect. This is important as it directs the airflow away from people which can increase aerosols from individuals spreading to others.

      • All barres, doorknobs and light switches will be wiped down with disinfectant.

      Bathroom Cleaning:

      • Foot pulls have been installed on the bathroom doors so they can be opened without hand touching
      • Bathrooms are cleaned each day

        Washing Hands/ Hand Sanitizer:

        • We encourage hand washing, or using hand sanitizer when entering and leaving the space
        • Hand sanitizer will be located in multiple locations around the facility including in each studio

        We will be doing our part to watch and remind everyone who enters the space of the policies we have set in place.  The health and well-being of our community is of the upmost importance.
