(I am speaking/writing of company class here)
In my own experience, which is of course entirely subjective, class was not especially aeorbic in the way a run or even a hike up a mountain would be.
In class there are always - if short - breaks in between exercises, and there one can catch one's breath.
What was difficult - in my time - were longer variations... think Myrta in Giselle.
I am sure there are at least several others where the dancers have to run around a whole lot.
But in the general class-room and rehearsal situation, I did not find Ballet to be particularly aeorbic, and therefore felt hardly any adverse effects from smoking in that regard.

in my experience, company class is often more aerobic than teaching/training classes. (and of course, following class with rehearsals is far more likely to become an aerobic challenge).
