Wearing a skin-tight leotard and body revealing tights are not high on the "to-do" list of many folks, but returning to childhood dreams of becoming a ballerina, a Rockette, or even a “Solid Gold” dancer, may be at the top of many a weary, wanna-be dancer’s list! The School of Nashville Ballet , www.nashvilleballet.com/school/community_division, (with two locations in Nashville, Martin Center at 3630 Redmon Street, Nashville and 500 Wilson Pike Circle, Suite 119, Brentwood) offers a Community Division group of classes, which are open to the public, on a drop-in ($25 for first class, $15 for each additional class) or on a semester basis, in which prices vary based upon how many classes are purchased. For example, 5 classes per semester are $75 dollars, or a full semester of 16 weekly classes of one class, such as Beginning Ballet, costs $200.00. Dress is relaxed, comfortable, exercise type wear, and a pair of ballet slippers are recommended.

The “Beginning Ballet” class is offered on Monday nights at 7:00 PM at both the Redmon Street and Brentwood locations, on Tuesday mornings at 9:30 AM at Redmon Street, 7:00 PM on Wednesday nights at the Redmon Street location, and at 7:00 PM, on Thursday nights at the Brentwood location. The new semester begins January 13, 2014 and continues through May 03, 2014. This class is a wonderful place to start, if you have been out of the “spotlight” for a number of years, or simply want to experience a new form of exercise or dance. Don’t be intimidated by others in the class, as this is a true beginner’s class, and there may be other, more experienced dancers, but this is also a class for those who are just learning. Students’ ages range from 20-something to over 60! The teachers at the school work hard to make each class a place where students can learn the basics of ballet, improve their technique, and encourage them to move on to a more advanced class in the future. Check out their website to find the perfect class for you, and then grab those ballet slippers and go for it!
