Adult Contemporary: Begin with a 15-minute warm up comprising movement quality/vocabulary specific to the genre, and dance-specific strength training. This class utilizes dance as a tool for expression, creativity and versatility.  We’ll learn short combos that play with space and develop varied movement quality. Choreography will incorporate some ballet and jazz technique, but will primary focus on floor work, range of motion, and abstract movement. Since this class is more about sensation and less about precision, it is an excellent space for beginners.  

Barre: Combining ballet, Pilates, and core-strengthening, this class is a full body, low-impact, intense work-out. You can expect a dance inspired warm-up, followed by center work with weights, along with the your workout at the barre. Class ends with strengthening exercises along with mat work and stretching.

Capoeira: Beginners welcome. Whether one enjoys dance, acrobatics, martial arts, language, music, or simply meeting new friends, capoeira has something for everyone.    Capoeira can be difficult to describe, but it’s a lot of fun.  The first class of each month focuses on fundamental movements, so come try a class and discover this amazing sport!

Beginning Adult Ballet: A “no-frills,” light-hearted, relaxed class for all ballet enthusiasts ranging from first timers to advanced beginners.  Within a classic class structure, we will address form and function as it relates to classical ballet.  We will learn basic steps and progressions as well as ffocus on efficient foundational movement patterns to create beautiful lines.  Remember, this is supposed to be fun!  No dress code, proper footwear strongly advised.
