I'm sure someone around here can point you in the right direction.

So far, this studio seems to be the front runner in my search, though I have yet to actually contact them. http://www.destinyda...m/our-facility/ Has anybody got any experience with them, or another recommendation? They are really further than I would like to travel, but it seems most studios that are close by are just... I believe you call them Dolly Dinkle schools or some such.

Any recommendations on open ballet classes in the summer (including August)? We will be in the Charlotte area this summer. It looks like Charlotte Ballet only holds a few during the week for their fall/winter schedule, so I wasn't sure how much they'd offer in the summer.
If anyone could point me in the direction of a good pre-pro ballet studio with a full schedule of open ballet classes, I'd appreciate it!

Open Door Studios probably has the largest selection of adult and teen open classes year round. They have open classes for beginners and for advanced students. You can check out their current schedule online. The schedule may change slightly during summer, but most of their teachers teach year round. If anything, they actually add more open classes during summer, as some of the classes that are reserved for their students during the year are opened up to everyone during the summer. This studio has a mix of recreational and pre-pro students, as they have programs for both, and they are also popular with adults and retired dancers. All of the classes listed on their Adult schedule are open for drop-ins.
In the past, Charlotte Ballet has done mostly beginner and intermediate open classes, but during the beginning of the summer and at the very end of the summer they will usually offer a couple of weeks of intermediate/advanced classes, to help their year round students stay in shape before and after summer intensives. These are open to the community. They usually don't post the info for these on their schedule until the week or so prior. If you are in town and interested in those classes, you may want to call and inquire, or keep checking the online schedule for updates.
Let me know if you have any questions!
