Adult Open Division


The Adult Open Division classes offer quality training in a variety of dance and fitness styles for the novice to professional-level dancer ages 15 and up.  Our instructors are qualified to assess a student’s level in class and to make appropriate recommendations upon request.

Ongoing Adult Division classes are offered year-round on a schedule designed to accommodate the lifestyles of working professionals and busy families. Dancers may register at any point during the school year and registered dancers may attend as many classes as they wish, paying for classes only when they attend by purchasing single classes or a mutli-class card.

Adult Division dancers are not required to pay a registration fee, although each student must complete a registration form each year to maintain active status.  Adult Division classes are ongoing and registered dancers may attend as many classes as they wish, paying for classes only when they attend. Single classes are $15. Class cards are available for $55 (redeemable for 4 classes) or $130 (redeemable for 10 classes). Class cards are non-refundable and are valid for one year from the date purchased.  As a courtesy to both our students and instructors, adult classes may be held with only one adult student at the discretion of the adult student and instructor. If the adult student and instructor both agree to hold class, the adult student will be charged $30 or two class stamps on their class card. Payment is to be made at the time the class is taken.

Suggestions for Class Attire:

Proper footwear is required, however the clothing guidelines below are merely suggestions. The primary goals of these guidelines are to provide dancers with maximum comfort and ease of movement while providing instructors with a clear view of body alignment. For ladies, an exercise top or sports bra with a tight-fitting t-shirt can be substituted for a leotard, however attire designed for dance provides the best comfort and fit, allowing for greater freedom of movement. For gentlemen, athletic shorts or pants with appropriate undergarments can be substituted for tights or leggings, but loose clothing does not provide the best visibility for instructors to assess proper body alignment.

Suggested styles are reasonably priced and can be purchased at various local retailers, including Kinney Dancewear, and online at Discount Dance Supply. A percentage of all orders placed through Discount Dance Supply will benefit the Louisville Ballet School by using the Teacher Referral Program code “TP27451.” Please visit our Dress Code Pages on Discount Dance Supply’s website for images and examples of appropriate dance wear.

Please review the suggestions below:

Ballet and Ballet Essentials ladies wear a leotard with tights or leggings and ballet slippers. Hair must be kept off the face and neck. Long hair should neat and well-secured. Gentlemen wear a tight-fitting t-shirt, tights or leggings with dance belt, socks, and ballet shoes.
