Home At the Barre – Adult Ballet, the fourth book in the Garage Ballet series, is a comprehensive guidebook for the adult ballet student. Ballet is a great exercise choice for adults because the steps and combinations press you to work, help you maintain strength levels, stay flexible, and most importantly, make you think about what you’re doing.
An experienced ballet instructor for over forty years, Dawn C Crouch can undoubtedly relate to being an adult. But, as a teacher who continues to take class, she wants every potential student to understand the class requirements and expectations that are unique to adult ballet curricula.
