Next month, we’re inviting you to get your battements in gear and get the sweat flowing at the Ballet Co.Laboratory studios with us! All open classes you find on our schedule and app will count towards your total, including yoga, conditioning and workshops.
We’ll be posting a score board in the lobby where we can keep track of where you are on your journey to ballet victory, and YES--you will receive a prize for reaching the 15-class goal: a Ballet Co.

We want to fill our new home with the people who have made it all possible, and their love for dance and the BCL community. Sign-up will start on June 1st at check-in, and you can join at any time during the month. Let’s get dancin'!
