Wilmington Ballet

Adult Program

Wilmington Ballet is proud to have one of the biggest and best Adult programs in the region. Many of the WB Adults take classes daily and are current or retired dance professionals and even WB Academy alumni. The Adults are involved with all Academy productions giving them several different performance opportunities throughout the year. This includes WB’s annual production of The Nutcracker at The Playhouse Theatre with a live orchestra.

Drop-in classes are designed for teen and adult students ages 13 and up - beginner, intermediate, and advanced instruction is available in a welcoming and friendly environment. Adult ballet is good for the mind as well as the body, promoting mental and cardiovascular fitness, balance, flexibility, strength, and posture. Students work on fluidity of movement, balance, and combinations with turns, adagio, and petit allegro. WB also holds Adult Pointe classes! Online registration not required. Drop-in and class cards are available. WB now offers an Adult Only Intensive during the summer (dates/times TBA). The Adults of WB give diversity to the dance community and truly show that dancing has no age limit.
