CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:

 

BALLET CLASSES

Ballet Workout 

Ballet Workout is a beginner/open level class for adults who are new to ballet or returning to ballet. Class begins with a basic barre sequence, followed by movement exercises in center. Focused on developing flexibility, alignment, strength, balance and posture, Ballet Workout is a great complement to your existing fitness practice.

Slow Intermediate Ballet 

Slow Intermediate Ballet is an open-intermediate level class for adults who have previous ballet experience. This class focuses on increasing strength and flexibility, and improving balance and posture while striving for efficient and healthy alignment.
 


FITNESS CLASSES

Barre Fitness 

Barre Fitness is a total body workout open to women and men of all fitness levels. It is a low cardio and intense toning class that works to elongate the muscles while burning fat. The class utilizes the use of the ballet barre, small hand weights, and other props to improve posture, give muscle definition, increase flexibility, and encourage weight loss. Each class is choreographed to a specific playlist to help motivate and give that extra musical push. Barre fitness targets the smaller muscles that often get lost in regular cardio or boot camp classes such as the oblique muscles, transverse abdominals, triceps, inner thighs, and gluteus. Expect to have fun and leave sweaty!

Classical Pilates

Classical Pilates is the original fitness method developed by Joseph Pilates that targets the core and helps building lasting strength and flexibility. Each class is tailored for all levels from beginner to advanced – so no need to be afraid to join even if you have never done Pilates before! All exercises can be modified to your individual level, and over time Pilates will help you develop a stronger, tighter core, balanced strength in all areas of the body, and improved flexibility and posture. Pilates is a great compliment to any exercise routine, and, as an added bonus, reduces lower back pain and improves performance in athletics and dance! 

Zumba

Zumba classes feature exotic rhythms set to high-energy Latin and international beats. Before you know it, you’ll be getting fit and will feel your energy levels soaring! There’s no other fitness class like a Zumba Fitness Party. It’s easy to do, effective and totally exhilarating, often building a deep-rooted community among returning students.
 


MODERN & CONTEMPORARY CLASSES

Contemporary

Contemporary utilizes modern dance principles and contemporary dance techniques as an expressive vehicle. With the language of contemporary dance as a meeting point, students will strive to improve their technical grounding; allowing them to develop their movement, improvisation and choreographic skills while also developing their creative abilities and body as a tool for communication. 

Modern 

Modern dance highlights movement patterns in view of body awareness, breath and a range of technical styles, creating a holistic dancing experience from the inside out. Gently guided through movement phrasing, students will focus on enhancing alignment, strength and flexibility while also developing a sense of artistry in action. 

Modern Dance Company

The Modern Dance Company is for adults at all dance levels, providing performance opportunities at various NYC venues. Rehearsals incorporate and develop themes from the Modern dance class, while members work creatively as a collective to produce dance works for performance. Through this process dancers are introduced to an understanding of choreography through guided tasks and choreographic direction.


SOCIAL DANCE CLASSES

East Coast Swing

East Coast Swing is fun and easy to learn, even for those who claim to have “two left feet”. Learning East Coast Swing is not only good exercise, but is also a great way to make new friends! Each class focuses on learning and refining basic swing dance technique, while incrementally building a fun dance combination over a four week period. Classes are designed for both drop-in students and regular attendees, so even if you can’t attend every class, you’ll still be able to pick up the moves and have fun. Each month we’ll learn a new dance so there will always be new material to learn! No dance partner is necessary, as we will rotate dance partners throughout class. 

Hip Hop

Hip Hop is an energetic and fun class for beginner-level dancers. Learn basic steps, rhythms, musicality and phrasing and choreography to popular hip hop music. This class is a fun way to increase confidence through movement.
