NCA is keeping you connected virtually with each other and with your favorite local arts and culture organizations. Many more virtual events on our calendar.  


*Boston Ballet School presents its Virtual Adult Elementary/Intermediate Open Ballet class on Thursday, July 2, at 5:30 p.m. via Zoom. This is a more challenging class for students who have completed Beginner or have had at least two to three years of prior ballet experience. Barre work includes balances in all positions, turning, and port de bras. Centre work includes the use of the body directions in combinations, with the beginnings of grand allegro (large traveling jumps). More complex combinations of steps, and classes are taught at a faster pace. Open ballet classes are for adults ages 16+ and classes are offered on a drop-in basis for $10/class.
