The Peabody Preparatory is proud to offer our Open Program for Adults and Teens 16+. Our mission is to provide high-quality instruction for those who seek a place to learn dance,
reconnect with their dance past, or continue their dance journey.
Whether you are a beginner and new to dance, or a seasoned professional, we welcome all ages and abilities. We offer a variety of classes at a range of levels including Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, and more. We aim to inspire and motivate dancers in an encouraging and supportive environment.
Performance opportunities are also available for the experienced dancer with our Adult Dance Ensemble. Adult dancers will have the chance to perform in studio recitals, the Spring Showcase, Peabody Plus Recitals, and possibly the Preparatory’s full length stage production at the end of the year.
For more information, please contact our Adult Dance Program Coordinator, Nicole Bealand at [email protected]. Don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns, we are happy to assist you.
