Ballet Áthas adult ensemble company  

Amateur Ballet Company for Adults

Level: Beginners/Improvers/Advanced

We would absolutely LOVE to have you dancing with our Ballet Áthas Adult Company.

The ballet classes and rehearsals are all mixed-ability level, taught on a sliding scale, so that everyone benefits and those who wish to advance can push a bit harder, but nobody feels lost or left behind. Many of our dancers - men and women - danced in their youth and are now coming back to ballet after a break - and they are all enjoying the experience very much!

This is a mixed-level, open, amateur ballet company and dancers are not remunerated. There are no auditions, all are welcome to dance with us!

Fees: €95 per month or €210 per full Term OR take advantage of the Dance House Package Deal 2019:

Repertoire Company AND Pointe Class Full Term Combined Fee: €385 (Students €350)

A minimum of two stage performances per year, in a local theatre in full costume is available to those dancers who wish to perform on stage.

  • Two shows per year

  • Weekly classical ballet class

  • Weekly rehearsals

  • Guest choreographers

  • Body conditioning & strength building


Get ready to work hard, have fun and channel your inner ballerina with a great class that can complement your normal ballet schedule. Strengthen and tone your body, improve your fitness, and increase flexibility in a fantastic weekly workout with beautiful choreography and music.

This course is great for anyone who took ballet classes in the past and would like to come back to ballet. Now you can dance your way to fitness and health, while listening to beautiful, uplifting music. Come along and give yourself the chance to dance and get fit!

The repertoire company is specifically for those dancers who want to learn pieces from the "real" ballets - we are just starting Swan Lake - and who potentially would like to perform for select friends and family in full costume in a real theatre!

We strongly advise booking a space in all classes as early as possible, as the studio space in Dance House is limited.

The new Dance House Adult Ballet term commences:
29 April to 16 July 2019

Fees can be paid online here by PayPal, or Debit/Credit Card, or in cash at the first class of term.
