Adult Classes


Marat Daukayev School of Ballet offers open classes for adults throughout the year, allowing dancers and dance enthusiasts the opportunity to study under Mr. Daukayev.

Classes are 1.5 hours in length and are presented in a traditional ballet class format:
Barre, Center, and Reverence.

We have live piano accompaniment on Fridays and Sundays.

Mr. Daukayev’s classes are considered intermediate/advanced in skill level, however, they are open to all who would like to try.  Prospective students are welcome to come and observe a class prior to participating if you’re unsure if the class is right for you.

Classes on Fridays and Sundays are upstairs, inside Dance Arts Academy (731 S. La Brea), in Studio A.

Please check our website regularly for updates, such as class cancellations, holidays, or if there is a substitute teacher for the day.

If you are interested in joining our email list for Adult Classes, please email your name and email address to In the subject line, please include the phrase “Adult Class Email”.


Individual classes are $22.00. We also offer class cards: $85.00 for 5-class cards and $155.00 for 10-class cards. Class cards are treated as cash. We do not offer replacements for missing or stolen Adult Class cards. Once you purchase a class card, your purchase is non-refundable, so if you are new to class, we suggest taking a one class for $22 before deciding to purchase a full class card.

Dress Code

There is not a dress code for our open adult classes. We do however expect appropriate dance attire and proper ballet shoes be worn in the classroom.


We ask that students arrive on time to class, properly warmed up. All students must sign-in with an MDSB staff member at the sign-in desk before entering the classroom. Payments must also be made at that time. Cell phones must be turned off or silenced. Please no texting in class. No food or gum is allowed in our studios; water only please.
