Former New York City Ballet principal dancer Daniel Duell is a primary source on classic American ballet, overseeing training in the Balanchine style of ambitious young dancers season after season. Ballet Chicago moved from its well-loved but well-worn Wabash space last fall. Taking class in the school’s new digs is a joy: Enormous windows and incredible views of the Loop make you feel as if you’re dancing in the clouds, and there’s plenty of room for warming up and cooling down. Offerings for adults include beginning and intermediate ballet, Pilates and fitness.
