How it works

Tuition is billed monthly on the 5th of the month, and entitles you attend regularly each week. This ensures that for the most part, the same dancers will be in your class and you will progress together through the steps and skills. Beginner Level 1 classes start at the VERY beginning, and all classes begin on a set date. We all start from the very beginning at the same exact time and progress together through the basics. 

Whenever possible, we keep the same 2-3 dancers in a Level 1 class for the first 3 months, but if your schedule changes and you need to switch classes, we will do our best to find you a class at a similar level!

All classes have a maximum of 3 dancers for personalized, individual instruction, and a close community in your classes.

Tuition Rates 

60 minute (Low Impact or Jumps and Turns) classes are $108/month and entitle you to attend your class once per week.

90 minute classes (Technique) are $165/month and entitle you to attend your class once per week.

Meet the founder of Broche Ballet

julie-gill.jpg

Julie Gill began dancing as an adult and is proof that it is never too late to live your dreams. She excelled quickly under the careful and exacting eye of Beth Kurtz in New York City, achieving pointe work within a short 2 years, and attending youth summer intensives where she danced alongside pre-professional ballet students.

She has always loved to teach and has taught many different subjects to many different audiences throughout her career. When Ms. Kurtz fell ill and was unable to continue teaching, Julie learned from her how to teach and pass along her methods.

As an adult dancer herself, she understands the differences in training adults and children, how to take adult dancers seriously, and she has the unique advantage of remembering how she figured things out which she passes on to her students.

Julie loves to break things down, solve problems, and help people understand the technique of ballet. She founded Broche Ballet so she could share the joy of ballet with all who wish to learn.

Our level 1 ballet class instructors

I came to Julie with zero experience in dance and expectations based solely on my private lessons with instructors in other disciplines. Our first lesson blew me away.

It seemed like 2.5 hrs worth of content stuffed into a one hour window. Besides my skill level, nothing really changed. They were all like that. My questions never went unanswered and my concerns never left unaddressed. I don’t know—and I can’t help but think about these things—how anything could have gone better.

After over six months with Julie, I do have one regret: I now hold my other teachers to a completely unreasonable standard!

FAQ

HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE IN EACH CLASS?

All classes have a maximum of 3 dancers for personalized, individual instruction, and a close community in your classes.

WHAT IF I WANT TO ATTEND BUT WILL MISS A FEW CLASSES?

Any missed class can be made up with a comparable class within 60 days of the missed class. Due to the nature of the small and finely grouped classes, we can’t guarantee that a makeup class will always be available immediately, but will do our absolute best to find you a comparable class!

Simply use our Makeup Finder to find a class that works for you!

WHAT IF MY SCHEDULE CHANGEs AND I CAN NO LONGER ATTEND THE SAME CLASS?

That's no problem! Just let us know what you need and we'll find you a new spot. Please give us as much notice as possible to make sure we can either get you on the waiting list for a comparable class, or slip you into a new class seamlessly. Dancers' schedules are always changing, so we can almost always accommodate your needs, too!

WHAT TO WEAR

We recommend wearing any kind of tight fitting athletic wear such as yoga pants and a tank top or even tights and a leotard and skirt - that decision is completely up to you and your level of comfort. The key is that your instructor needs to see the form of your body to be able to ensure proper alignment while doing the exercises.

For footwear, you may wear socks for your first class, but we prefer to have our students in a pair of traditional ballet slippers. You can view an example of this type of slippers on Amazon here. You can get any similar ones that you find on Amazon or Discount Dancewear. You'll see a couple of different options for canvas vs leather, split sole vs full sole, and 1 elastic or 2. It's very much a personal preference, but our team prefers canvas shoes, split sole with 2 criss-cross elastic. The full-sole gives you a little more support, but doesn't look as pretty. And the leather lasts a bit longer but doesn't breathe as well and isn't as great for the Marley flooring that we have in the studio.
