Adult Dance & Fitness Classes

Adults are dancing! It’s never too late to begin… or begin where you left off as a child or teen. Dancing is a great way to exercise your body, mind and spirit! IAD offers inspiring and nurturing adult dance classes from the Beginner level through Advanced in Ballet, Jazz, Modern, Contemporary/Hip-Hop, Tap, Zumba & Belly Dance. Adult classes are available by drop-in or class card and pre-registration is not required for most classes.

IAD offers a spacious state of the art facility with sprung floors and the same Marley dance surface used by the Royal Ballet. You will find the highest caliber training in a comfortable and encouraging atmosphere. Many of our instructors have been successfully training and coaching professional dancers in Santa Cruz for over 20 years.

International Academy of Dance Director and Staff consider physical, mental and emotional wellness to be of utmost importance. We believe everyone can enjoy the benefits of dance classes from the three year old pre-ballet student to the pre-professional dancer or adult student looking for an enjoyable way to exercise. Adults seeking performance venues are invited to audition for our annual Nutcracker and ask about other performing opportunities throughout the year.
