Ballet Nevada's FIT classes in Zumba, ballet, jazz, tap, and strength and conditioning galvanize training twirlers and aerobic aces alike with elegant arabesques and prodigious boogying.

FIT ballet classes are an ideal destination for miniature music-box ballerinas who have come unhinged from their moorings.
