The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Ballet


Once you complete the Multi Story Renovations Quest your preteen sims will be able to practice ballet at the community center, this is different from other hobbies as you do not earn prizes for completing a collection as there isn’t a collection!

You complete this hobby by clicking on the record player or ballet barre on the right hand side of the downstairs of the community center, the options are:

Record player at the community center:

  • One Pirouette- 10 minutes
  • Quick Pirouette- 1 hour
  • Pirouettes- 6 hours 
  • Extensive Pirouettes- 12 hours

Ballet Barre:

  • Stretch- 30 seconds

Or you can buy the record player from the preteen section of the home store for 10LPs

Record player at home:

  • One Pirouette- 4 minutes
  • Quick Pirouette- 1 hour
  • Pirouettes- 9 hours
  • Extensive Pirouettes- 1 day

After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head, they will not find a collectible, you will just earn rewards each time your preteen sims level up in this hobby, once you reach 100% you will level up, there are 6 levels.

The table below shows the level up percentage for each option:

This may change in future updates

Record Player:

 LEVEL  10 minutes 1 hour 6 hour 12 hour
1-2 2% 13% 83% 166%
2-3 1% 9% 55% 111%
3-4 1% 6% 41% 83%
4-5 5% 29% 60%
5-6 3% 18% 36%

Ballet Barre:

 LEVEL  30 seconds
1-2 30%
2-3 20%
3-4 15%
4-5 10%
5-6 6%

The next table shows you the level up rewards for the first and future sims will receive when they level up in this hobby:

1 All Left Feet (Pink and White Outfits)
2 Novice (Pink and White Outfits) 2 Ballet Posters 100 Town Value
3 Intermediate (White Outfits) Lamp 250 Town Value
4 Advanced (White Outfits) 2 Wallpapers and Ballet Door 500 Town Value
5 Expert (Black Outfits) Ballet Award 1,000 Town Value
6 Professional (Black Outfits) Ballet Figurine 1,500 Town Value

Below you can see the prizes you unlock when your first preteen sim completes this hobby:

  • Reaching Level 2 unlocks Posters
  • Reaching Level 3 unlocks Lamp
  • Reaching Level 4 unlocks Wallpaper and Door
  • Reaching Level 5 unlocks Award
  • Reaching Level 6 unlocks Figurine



Why does this hobby not show up with a collection in the hobby tab?

This and Karate do not show up because you don’t unlock a collectible each time you complete the hobby, you only get the rewards shown above when you level up for the first time and the town value reward for further times you level up. You will receive no other rewards.
