Join us at Peabody Heights Brewing for a Modern class with Kris Harris and the crew!

Dancing to 80’s and 90’s music, students will participate in an hour-long modern class which occurs at a brewery. Participants of legal age are invited to purchase a brew and take their place at the bar. The class will then concentrate on anatomical position, movement therapy, and beginning to intermediate ballet training.

Beer and Ballet is known for its community outreach and positive spirit. There is always an “After Class Hangout” where participants are invited to stay at the brewery to meet new people, talk about class, chat about the brews they are enjoying, and experience a new community.

Please note: No refunds 24 hours before the event. Walk-in tickets are $15 at the door.
