Adult Ballet with Rebeca Maso
This ballet class for adults is a great form of movement fitness, slowly building upper body strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination for the new dancer!

Adult Caribbean Flow with Winston Benons Jr.
Winston's high-energy style transports dancers of all levels straight to the islands of the Caribbean in this fun and lively class. Each session fuses dance styles of salsa, rumba, soca, merengue, and more. Get strong, get loose, and learn some cultural history while you move!
Adult Flamenco with JoDe Romano
This class serves as an introduction to the art form of flamenco, covering basic technique. Work on rhythm exercises and full body coordination to engage the entire body through hand, arm and footwork exercises. Have fun expressing yourself through this empowering dance style!
Adult Latin Fusion with Brett Sturgis
Wednesdays at 7:30-8:30pm
Brett's exciting style of Latin Fusion introduces rhythms through elements of salsa/mambo, cha-cha-cha, rumba, samba and African through contemporary styles of jazz dance, modern, theater and improvisation. A marriage of rhythm and technique, with a cardio/dance movement driven warm-up that will increase the student/performers' ability to gain endurance and stamina, classes include a multi-styled technique base including work on posture, stretch, form & balance, and strengthening through movements from Latin dance styles. Dancers can improve their style & performance skills including everything from spatial awareness to facial expressions, and developing confident body language overall.
Adult Latin Jazz with Camille Moten
Latin Jazz is a style equally rooted in jazz-influenced technique with a Latin-American inflection, infusing styles of salsa, samba, cha cha, and other popular Latin vernacular dance. The movement, expression, and musical accompaniment is pulled from both styles, exploring the fundamentals of both classical jazz and Latin ballroom. Combinations will explore polyrhythmic movement, stylistic textures, and performance development.
Adult Tap with Raquel Valiente
Tap dance fundamentals will be taught and explored in fun rhythmic patterns. Students will dance to Latin, jazz and Broadway tunes, ending each class with a short combo.
Adult Sevillanas with Castanets with Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana
Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana brings a lively Sevillanas with Castanets class right into the Ballet Hispánico studios! People of all ages and levels will enjoy learning the basic techniques and rhythms of the castanets and will also dive into the Sevillanas; a partner dance that is a "must-learn" for any flamenco student. Led by Maria De Los Angeles, the Sevillanas with Castanets class will prepare you to participate in the Annual Feria Celebration that takes place each April in NYC! No partner necessary.
