Frequently Asked Questions

Introduction

Ballet is an intense and beautiful sport. It can help people learn how to be more creative, as well as become physically stronger. And while most people who intend to become professional ballerinas start at a young age, people can take up ballet at any time. To learn ballet, you'll have to take professional lessons at a ballet studio, either privately or as part of a class. Of course, if you've never taken dance lessons before, you may be uncertain about how to decide which studio to choose. Keep reading for answers to the most common questions about ballet classes, so you can make an informed decision when selecting a studio.

What is ballet?

Ballet is an artistic dance form characterized by light, fluid, graceful, and precise movements. Ballet dancers wear pointe shoes that allow them to stand on their toes and twirl. This type of performative dance can tell a story to an audience. Ballet is very technical, often taking people years to master.

Where did ballet originate?

Ballet originated in Italy in the early 1500s. In fact, the word ballet stems from the Italian word "ballare," which means "to dance." Although it originated in Italy, ballet was introduced to the French and Russian courts, where it was really transformed. By 1850, Russia had become the leader in creating and transforming ballet into what it is today.

How long are ballet classes?

The length of a ballet class depends on the student's age. Children aged three to eight will only take a 30-minute to one-hour class. From there, class length increases with age:

  • Nine year-olds take one-hour classes
  • Ten year-olds take one-1.5 hour classes
  • Eleven year-olds take 1.5-hour classes
  • Twelve to eighteen year-olds take 2-hour classes

Can you learn ballet as an adult?

You can absolutely learn ballet as an adult. In fact, ballet is a great way to get physical exercise and increase your strength as an adult. Of course, starting as an adult means it's unlikely you’ll become a professional ballet dancer, but it does mean you can do it for fun!

Can adults learn ballet en pointe?

There's a benefit to learning to dance ballet en pointe in your younger years. As your feet develop, dancing ballet helps ensure they gain the strength, flexibility, and shape to dance en pointe. However, it’s not impossible for adults to learn en pointe. It will just take a lot of time and dedication.

How do I become better at ballet?

Ballet is all about dedication and practice. You should be committed to going to your classes every week (multiple times a week is ideal), warming up before classes, and wearing the right shoes. You can also improve your ballet by staying fit and taking part in other types of physical exercise.

Is ballet dangerous?

Ballet is a form of physical exercise, and like any activity, it can come with an element of danger. Most notably, ballet can cause foot pain, foot injuries, and even permanent foot damage. Additionally, ballet dancers may be susceptible to falling and breaking bones in their arms, legs, ankles, and feet.

Is ballet good exercise for adults?

Yes, as ballet is incredibly intense, it’s a great form of exercise for adults. Ballet is a weight-bearing exercise, so it provides a workout for the entire body. Adults taking ballet classes will burn calories and fat, as well as strengthen their muscles.

What should I wear to ballet class?

Ballet is often about precise and graceful movements, so you don’t want loose clothing getting in the way. Women are encouraged to wear form-fitting leotards, tights, and ballet flats. Men should wear black footed or footless tights, a form-fitting white T-shirt, and ballet shoes.

How do I make a bun for ballet class?

Ballerinas often opt for a bun hairstyle, so their hair is up and out of their face and doesn't distract them. There are various styles of buns, including sock buns, high buns, low buns, etc. You can find tutorials on YouTube that will guide you through making a bun in a style you like.

What should you wear to your first ballet class?

Consider wearing ballet flats, a fitted shirt and leggings to your first class, Once you're sure you want to continue with the classes, you can invest in ballet tights and leotards.

What should you eat before ballet class?

Your body will need fuel for an intense ballet class, but you can't eat too heavy a meal, as you may be spinning and moving around a lot. Instead, opt for calorie-dense food that's not too filling. Some great examples are nuts and seeds, protein bars, granola bars, hummus and crackers, cheese and crackers, and fruit.

How many calories are burned in ballet class?

How many calories you burn during a ballet class depends on various factors, including your body mass index and metabolic rate. However, on average, an individual burns 462 calories during 30 minutes of a ballet class. More calories are burned during ballet classes than with many other types of dance, such as the waltz, samba, and Zumba.

How can I learn ballet at home?

You can try to learn basic ballet at home with video tutorials or virtual lessons from an instructor. However, nothing can replace in-person training where a teacher can adjust your form and show you how to improve. Consider starting with video tutorials and progressing to in-person classes.

Can I make a ballet barre at home?

Yes, you can make a ballet barre at home. You can purchase the supplies a home improvement store and watch a video on how to install the barre at the right height. This barre can help you practice and improve your ballet skills at home.

How much do ballet classes cost?

Ballet classes can vary in cost depending on the student's age, the school's location, the class size, whether it's beginner's or advanced instruction, the school's reputation, and other factors.
In general, you can expect to pay:

  • $40 per class for a toddler
  • $40-$50 per class for a child
  • $50 to $85 per hour, and average of $60 per hour, for an adult class

How much are ballet shoes?

The price of ballet shoes will depend on the brand, quality, and other factors. Typically, a pair of ballet shoes can cost between $45 and $125. However, if you’re purchasing a popular brand, prices are likely on the higher side at $65 to $90, on average. 

Who painted the ballet class?
