Deepen your knowledge, perfect your technique, and benefit from the expertise of our certified instructors with private sessions. Designed to specifically target your unique needs and concerns, private sessions are a great way to get one-on-one time with your favorite teacher.
BFW teachers can accommodate private and semi-private (reserved group) classes for any type of student. All private classes (as are our Drop-In Classes) are fulfilled on a first-come, first-serve basis and subject to availability. Here are some popular scenarios for dancers.
If you’d like to get a special glimpse at Ballet, get familiarized with technique and vocabulary, receive an exclusive assessment, or receive special instructions from your teacher, a private lesson is a great way for newcomers to warm up to the barre.
If you are joining us after a long pause or an injury, it’s always a great idea to have a private session with one of our teachers, to assess any impediments for our classes. If this is your case, please remember to read all our disclaimers, and to get approval from your physician (for more information, view our Medical Disclaimer).
We have special classes for individuals and for small groups (semi-private) for Silver Swans (Over 65+). These are specially designed for seniors, to promote low-impact exercises that are best suited for more mature dancers. Please remember to read all our disclaimers and, when in doubt, get approval from your physician (for more information, view our Medical Disclaimer).
Our group classes may not necessarily be a good fit for all dancers in pre-natal or post-natal stages. If you’d like to schedule a weekly private session to learn more about the exercises and assess your individual dance conditioning process, please Contact Us. If this is your case, please remember to read all our disclaimers, and to get approval from your physician (for more information, view our Medical Disclaimer).
Although at BFW we teach group Beginner Pilates and Intermediate Pilates classes, we currently do not offer Drop-In Advanced Pilates. However, this alternative is available via private classes, where dancers can receive one-on-one instruction from Certified Pilates Instruction, as well as request to incorporate specific movements to improve ballet technique.
Private classes can vary in duration (30 or 60 minutes) and depending on the nature of the class, may need different lead times for advanced planning and scheduling. In your request, please be as specific as possible, to match you with the best teacher to help you with your ballet journey.
If you’d like to create your own experience for your groups of friends, coworkers, family members, or even curate a team of BFW dancers for an exclusive class, try one of our semi-private lessons. This session will be open for only your team and can be designed to accommodate all the modalities above.
