Class Descriptions

Classes begin with a full body warm-up and then transition into spacious, athletic, and often inverted phrases, encouraging awareness to sensation, movement efficiency, and individual performance. A rich sense of community and support is fostered as dancers are guided to fall, roll, and fly across the floor together.

 Urban Technique:
This upbeat class will build a foundation of basic hip-hop movements with the most upbeat instructor of them all! Derived from a combination of street dance, funk, jazz, and social dance, Urban Technique requires high energy, builds attention to detail, and develops understanding of complex rhythms. Students will focus on the importance of isolations and dynamics to execute movements.

Body Tool Kit:
Start your morning with a full body mat class drawing from the movement modalities of Pilates, Yoga, and Gyrokinesis®. This class aims to keep the body functional and healthy by equipping the dancer with a variety of conditioning tools. 

Adult Improvisation:
Dancing in the Moment - Improvisational dance for adults (ages 18 to 100) who love to move. No steps to memorize: just a desire to move in free and expressive ways within a fun and supportive group setting. Explore new techniques of dancing to music, art, poetry, breath, and sound. Great for the mind, body, and spirit.
**Improvisation class only runs for 5 weeks (Last class on May 1st)
