Ohman School of Ballet Adds Ballet Barre Workout Classes

Ohman School of Ballet Adds Ballet Barre Workout Classes

Ohman School of Ballet in Commack recently added Ballet Barre Workout classes for adults.


Ohman School of Ballet in Commack added Ballet Barre Workout classes for adults in September. No previous ballet training is required for the Ballet Barre Workout, though classes train and develop the same muscles professional ballerinas do. The fitness sessions focus on muscle toning and strengthening.

Ballet Barre Workout classes are currently offered Tuesdays from 9:45-10:45am and Wednesdays from 7-8pm. The class costs $15 for an hour-long session. Babysitting is available Tuesday morning for $5 per child.

Ohman School of Ballet offers ballet classes for children ages 3 and older, as well as separate classes for adults. Workshops, summer classes, and intensives are also offered.

Ohman School of Ballet was founded by Frank Ohman, a well-known dance professional who started his career dancing with the San Francisco Ballet before dancing with the New York City Ballet. The school was founded with the intent for students to learn classical ballet in the tradition of George Balanchine.

Students of Ohman School of Ballet have previously been accepted into some of the most prestigious ballet schools in the country, including: American Ballet Theater, San Francisco Ballet, Boston Ballet, Chautauqua, Miami City Ballet, Orlando Ballet, New York State Summer School of the Arts, The Rock School, Walnut Hill School, Joffrey Ballet, and Ballet Academy East.
