CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

DANCE CLASSES

Absolute Beginner Ballet (4-week series)
Dancewave’s Absolute Beginner Ballet is for the novice dancer with little to no previous experience, in a welcoming and encouraging environment. Students will learn the basic positions, body alignment terminology, and short routines to jazz and contemporary music. Registration required (this is not a drop-in 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.

Beginner Modern
Class is a highly imaginative and highly physical investigation of ourselves as movers. Class begins with a sensation-based warm up where we ground ourselves through improvisation and set material. We will learn some basics of modern technique and cultivate skills, strength and curiosity through floor, standing exercises and across the floor sequences. Class culminates in a full bodied athletic dance phrase that challenges us physically and creatively as dance artists. Suitable for the absolute beginner to dance and/or modern dance, this class is open to all interested in moving. 

Open-Level Modern 
Class is a highly imaginative and highly physical investigation of ourselves as movers. Class begins with a sensation-based warm up where we ground ourselves through improvisation and set material. We will work on building our technique and cultivating our curiosity through floor, standing exercises and across the floor sequences. Class culminates in a full bodied athletic dance phrase that challenges us physically and creatively as dance artists. Suitable for a beginner but more geared towards a person with some dance class experience, this class is open to all interested in being pushed physically and creatively and working to dig deeper in their dancing.

Modern Dance Company (Fall and Spring trimesters only)
The Modern Dance Company is for adults at all dance levels, providing performance opportunities at various NYC venues throughout the year. Rehearsals incorporate and develop themes from the Modern dance classes, 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. Dancers who attend either the beginning modern or open level modern are encouraged and welcomed to join the Company.

Soca
Soca is an upbeat and fun Caribbean and Carnival based dance class. Students will burn calories and learn techniques, including wining, for a total body workout.

FITNESS CLASSES

Barre Vida
Barre Vida is a total body workout open to people 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!

Capoeira Workout
Capoeira is a unique Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics and music. Classes focus on stretching, conditioning, the fundamental movements of capoeira, kicks, dodges and light acrobatics. Through training, you gain strentgh, flexibility, a great shape and have a lot of fun.

Essentrics®
Essentrics is a full body workout that rapidly changes the shape of your body through a dynamic combination of strengthening and stretching. The technique develops lean, strong and flexible muscles with immediate changes to your posture. Perfect for people of all fitness levels, this program rebalances the body, prevents and treats injuries and unlocks tight joints. With a diverse music playlist accompanying each routine, this equipment-free workout leaves you feeling energized, youthful and healthy.

Zumba®
