We offer weekly ballet and modern classes for adults as well as Pilates and tap classes at our Grace United studio. Adult classes follow a different schedule than children’s classes, generally running throughout the year. We recommend calling the office to confirm class schedules.

Ballet

We offer two levels of Adult Ballet: advanced beginner/intermediate classes are held Saturdays 12:30 to 2 pm.

Intermediate/advanced ballet classes are held Sundays noon to 1:30.  Sunday classes are taught by a rotating schedule of teachers, generally current or former members of Houston Ballet.

Drop in rate for 90 minute adult ballet classes is $20.  Class cards are available for $150 for 10 classes or $90 for 5 classes. Cards may be used for Tuesday, Saturday or Sunday classes. Cards are valid for 4 months.

Pilates

   Pilates is a system of exercise that builds strength in upper arms, the back and abdominals. It incorporates  stretching to  build flexibility and balance.  Its focus on mental concentration and effort refreshes the mind as it de-stresses the body. Pilates can help relieve strain on joints by improving your posture.

Our Pilates mat classes are open to all levels. We provide mats as well as small equipment such as stretch bands, small hand weights, and exercise balls. Attire is comfortable clothing you can move in. Tee shirt and leggings are fine.  Bare feet. Students are encouraged to bring bottled water.

Pilates classes are held Tuesdays 7:30-8:30 p.m. in Studio C on the second floor of our Grace United location.  Drop in rate is $15.
