Pretty Plies

brookline ballet school!

Your daughter fancies herself Angelina Ballerina and your son thinks he’s Spider-Man. With all the leaping and twirling in your house, things are getting downright dangerous.

Give them wiggle room at the newly opened Brookline Ballet School, a polished spot for children’s dance lessons. Classes include preschool ballet (ages 4 and up), toddler yoga, boys-only dance, and postpartum Pilates for mom and baby. Everything’s run in part by retired professional dancers Trinidad Vives (former artistic associate of Boston Ballet) and Parren Ballard.

So you know the barre is high.


The Brookline Ballet School, 1431 Beacon Street, Brookline (617-879-9988 or brooklineballet.com).
