Open Drop-in Classes for Adults & Teens

Dance for Everyone

Verb Ballets welcomes students wishing to study dance with its Dance For Everyone (DFE) Community Dance Program! These classes are specifically designed for ages 14 and up. We offer an array of ballet classes, jazz, and barre strength. Classes are available for a variety of different ability levels from beginner to advanced. DFE classes  are ongoing and drop-ins are always welcome! No pre-registration necessary, we just ask that you arrive 10 minutes early to your very first class so we can show you around!

COVID-19 Update

We appreciate all your patience and continued commitment as we have been monitoring the situation around COVID-19. At this time, we have decided to cancel all adult/teen classes until the government has deemed safe. This decision is to ensure the safety and well being of our students in hopes to do our part to flatten the curve.

You can continue to keep moving and dancing at home:

Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you located?

In The Dealership at 3558 Lee Road in Shaker Heights.

Is there parking?

Yes! We have a free parking lot on the north side of The Dealership Building, connecting directly to the Verb Ballets studio door.

What should I wear?

Whatever you want! Athletic wear, sweats, or a leotard and tights-whatever makes you feel comfortable and ready to dance! Certain more advanced ballet classes do require ballet slippers, but for Beginning and New to Ballet classes socks are just fine! For yoga, please use bare feet.

Do I need to preregister for class?

Not at all! All of our adult classes are held on a drop-in basis. If it’s your very first class with us, we just ask that you arrive 10-15 minutes early to fill out a registration form and so we can show you around!

Will I need a water bottle?

YES! Having water on hand is encouraged during every class you take with us. Feel free to keep your water bottle next to you in the studio for a quick sip whenever you need it!

Do I need to bring my own yoga mat?

For sanitary reasons, we encourage everyone to bring their own yoga mat. We do, however, have a limited number of clean mats at the studio available for use. Just ask the teacher before class!
