We offer classes for ages 3 to adult, including a Pre-Professional Division for the serious dance student. See schedule below. Scroll down this page for the Guild’s COVID-19 Health & Safety Plan.
Our teachers foster a positive and supportive learning environment in each class, where students will be encouraged to build confidence through accomplishments in dance. To meet the needs of our students, we offer classes through our two-division system: Pre-Professional and Community. Students in both divisions may audition for our yearly production of The Nutcracker at Zoellner Arts Center, Lehigh University, as well as our annual Spring Ballet, and other productions that may occur throughout the year.
Males Dance Free at Ballet Guild! Dance students ages 3 through adult are invited to attend classes tuition free! Choose from the list below. Students interested in the Pre-Professional Division must have dance experience and audition for placement.

This intense course of study is designed for the serious dance student with previous ballet experience and include Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, & Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) . Placement of all students in this division is determined by audition.
Classes emphasize the development of ballet skills with a focus on knowledge, proper placement, and alignment. Students will learn ballet vocabulary through barre and centre work while building stamina, strength, flexibility, and musicality. In addition to Pointe work, classes in Variations, Repertoire, Tap, Jazz, and Modern are also given. Additional performance opportunities will take place throughout the year.
Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) is included in the class schedule for Pre-Professional Division students. This revolutionary supplementary dance training (developed by Marie Walton-Mahon) will sharpen technical precision and includes exercises to strengthen core stability, muscle control, and balance.
