Our Adult Ballet classes are welcome to all levels, from absolute beginner to advanced. These classes are designed to build and maintain strength, flexibility, and proper classical ballet technique. The benefits of ballet are endless! Whether you're a trained dancer or not, ballet helps build long, lean muscles, improves posture, inspires confidence, strengthens your core, and decreases stress. It is the perfect complement to other fitness routines, while allowing you to be creative and have fun.
Floor-Barre™ is used by dancers to improve their posture & technique, and strengthen their core abdominal muscles through resistance exercises. This technique is offered during the Tue/Thu class, and we are the only studio in Marin County to offer this class by a certified teacher!
Shelley Scott (Mon/Fri)
As a world-renowned dancer, Shelley is one of the last four dancers to work with and be personally trained by George Balanchine. She was a lead dancer with the New York City Ballet and the San Francisco Ballet. She has worked with notable choreographers, such as Michael Smuin, Twyla Tharp, and Robert Joffrey. She is dedicated to teaching, choreographing, and passing on the traditions of classical ballet. Shelley teaches all levels at Stapleton School, and is also the executive director of Ballet Califia in Cotati. She says, "I dance because without it, there would be no beauty, inspiration, or reason to exist."
