Ballet Lounge

Fitness inspired Ballet and Dance Classes, that will make you Sweat, Smile, Move and Groove!

Ballet Lounge® is an exciting new dance/fitness studio that offers unique and fun classes for dancers and aspiring-dancers alike! Participants not only learn how to dance, they also get a full body workout that improves flexibility, muscular strength, endurance and also develops poise and confidence. We also offer additional fitness classes to compliment your dance experience as well as provide one on one dance/fitness instruction.

Our most popular class is Ballet Fit™ an aerobic style workout with a continuous flow of ballet movements all strategically choreographed to invigorating and beautiful music. Your experience consists of a series of exercises at the barre and in the centre followed by additional core and flexibility work. This is not your typical 'barre workout' or adult ballet class, it is so much more!

Creator and Founder, Suzy Kaitman has an extensive background in professional ballet training from the School of Alberta Ballet and the University of Calgary's BA (Ballet) Dance Program. She is a certified Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor who has a passion for movement, music and helping others live healthy & active lifestyles. She has over 15 years experience teaching ballet and fitness to a wide range of clients varying in age, abilities, injuries and goals. Suzy's high energy and positive attitude is contagious and her warm and supportive approach makes clients feel comfortable to overcome challenges.

Suzy's vision is to revolutionize the adult dance/fitness experience by creating a unique, safe and fun environment, as well as provide high quality instruction that is accessible to anyone.

Meet one of our awesome members Sarah, and read her amazing story:
.
Sarah’s original goal when she signed up was to tone up and feel confident for her wedding in August 2017, bridal fitness goals take a life of their own! Lol
.
Sarah used to drive by the Ballet Lounge, and would look in the windows and see everyone having lots of fun while dancing beautifully! She grew up dancing and missed it, and thought getting back into dance would be a great way to achieve her fitness goals.
.
Now that Sarah has achieved her bridal fitness goals, she is a lot more confident about her body! She walks and holds herself differently, and she loves flexing my arms because they are STRONG! She felt gorgeous on her wedding day and loved seeing her hard work pay off in her wedding photos.
.
Now Sarah feels determined about her future! Although she is back to school and life is busy, she is making an effort to come to as many classes as she can because; she wants to stay strong and healthy to maintain the confidence that she has built.
.
What Sarah likes best about working with Ballet Lounge is the community. She loves all of the wonderful, kind, and encouraging teachers. She sincerely enjoys getting to know the other dancers - whom have inspired her as she watched their incredible progress!
.
In order to reach her goals, time was her biggest challenge to overcome. Scheduling in time to make it to class can be tricky. Sarah’s advice to anyone who might be dealing with scheduling woes is:
.
“Decide what you want, prioritize it, and make it happen. While we all love spending time with our families and friends, being the star at work, at school, etc., taking care of ourselves is so important. Show yourself some dance love so you'll have more energy, passion, creativity, and support to give to the other areas of your life and the people you love. You may think you're too tired to go to dance class after a 12-plus hour day but you're not! Just go and you'll thank yourself later!”
.
We couldn't agree more! Amazing work Sarah, you look beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing your story :-)

Save the date: Saturday April 7th for our 2nd year Anniversary Party! Please RSVP on our Facebook event page!

Meet one of our awesome members Jenna, and read her amazing story:
.
Jenna always loved to dance! Ballet was her childhood dream, however she was never told that she was good enough. One day, Jenna’s dance teacher suggested that she should quit Ballet, which hurt and took a toll on her self esteem.
.
As an adult, Jenna missed Ballet and tried other classes in the city. She found that all the beginner classes were not geared towards actual beginners. Everyone was above her level and she felt discouraged. Fortunately at that time, that is when she discovered #BalletLounge and decided to give it one last try. Jenna felt nervous when she first enrolled but after her first class, she was ecstatic! She finally found the Dance Home she was looking for!
.
Jenna started dancing with us in August 2016 and after 15 months of hard work, she has finally earned her pointe shoes! Within months she increased her flexibility dramatically and now everyone comments on how flexible she has become. Not only has she achieved her goal, she has overcome her challenges with confidence!
.
What Jenna likes best about working with Ballet Lounge is that all the instructors share the same message of self love, are friendly, encouraging and pay equal attention to all students. What she finds so refreshing is that even the students are enthusiastic and supportive instead of being competitive and snobby!
.
Jenna encourages everyone to come try a class! “Everyone can dance, you just need the right environment. Be open to constructive corrections, they are there to help you improve. When you trust yourself and accept life’s challenges, you will see that you can do anything!”
.
We love you Jenna! Thank you for sharing your story 😊

If you have not been to the #BalletLounge lately, we are excited to announce: that we have installed a new barre & purchased new mats!
.
We only offer the very best because YOU deserve the BEST! This will help with our demanding waitlists, as well as accommodate more dancers in our classes - to serve you better!

Wishing everyone a very spooky & safe Halloween!
