FREE Intro to Ballet Class - Always been interested in trying ballet but feeling a little intimidated? This free 45-minute class helps to break the ice by providing an overview of what you can expect from a ballet class and an introduction to the basic body placement and positions of the discipline.
Ballet Barre - This class offers a traditional ballet barre in which you'll gradually warm-up, stretch and strengthen your body through the classical series of ballet exercise from pliés to grande battement. Perfect for those seeking a low-impact workout and wanting to focus on developing long, lean muscles; conditioning the legs, glutes, arms and core; developing flexibility and coordination; and practicing your ballet epaulement.
Beginning Ballet - Ballet can be considered a foundational practice for other forms of dance and athletics because of its focus on the placement of each part of the body and how muscles are used in a coordinated way to create fluid or dynamic movements. Beginning ballet class explores the five core positions of ballet; how to align the body when standing still and maintain that alignment when moving; and the simpler movements and steps that form the basis of more complex movements later on. Ballet slippers are recommended.
Intermediate/Advanced Ballet - This class is appropriate for dancers who have a firm understanding of ballet placement and have mastered the vocabulary and foundational steps of ballet. Class includes barre, center and across-the-floor combinations. Pointe shoes are welcome for this class but never required.
Advanced Ballet - This class is appropriate for dancers who have an advanced ability in ballet and are looking for a challenge! It is not required that dancers have danced professionally, but please be prepared for steps and combinations that would be given to dancers in a company.
Neoclassical Ballet - This class is appropriate for intermediate to advanced dancers—with adventurous beginners welcome! A strong foundation in traditional ballet is recommended. Neoclassical ballet "bends the rules" of traditional ballet with more daring use of the torso and off-center balances. Don brings his repertoire in neoclassical ballet from the Philippines. Looking to shake your ballet up a bit and feel new muscles you haven't used before? Give this class a try!
TONING & CONDITIONING CLASSES
Body by Barre - A dancer’s workout developed for non-dancers, too! This class uses small-range, low-impact, repetitive movements and resistance props to strengthen and tone muscles, helping you develop the long lean lines of a ballet dancer.
Core Strength - Get a total body workout that starts from the core. This class is a series of exercises on the mat, at the barre and traveling that will help you develop core stability and strength while also targeting your legs, back and arms. Developed for those who want a more intensive strengthening workout that will make you sweat!
Beginning Contemporary - Forget about the straight lines and highly particular placement of ballet … Contemporary dance is about unpredictability, expression, and freedom—but not without a strong focus on technique. This class begins with warm-ups and exercises to get your body loose and limber and open to making shapes we don’t use in “real life,” and builds into a longer choreographed piece. Appropriate for brand new and practicing beginners.
Intermediate/Advanced Contemporary - This class is appropriate for those who have taken contemporary classes before and are ready for more advanced movements and “tricks.” Bring your inner artist and challenge yourself to attempt a fall, jump or contortion you haven’t mastered yet!
Improvisation - Free your creativity! In our improv classes you’ll balance body awareness and exploration of self by using techniques of physical and rhythmic training. Focusing on dynamics, breath, and intention to create your highest self. Great for choreographers or anyone looking to break down mental walls or self-consciousness in their dancing, or seeking to experiment with new movements and rhythms. Unleash your storytelling skills in a judgment free environment.

Some hip hop or jazz experience recommended.
Total Beginner Jazz - Are you a total jazz newbie, or a beginner who prefers a more systematic approach? Come and join us as we progress each week by working on basic jazz steps and combinations. Dancers will gain confidence through thorough instruction of the foundational elements of jazz, set to a pace where all levels can feel successful and challenged. Combine this with a finger-snapping playlist and non-judgmental class setting, and you’ll be sizzling and shimming in no time!
Beginning Jazz - If you’re new to jazz but up for learning simpler choreography, come try this class. Jazz is a very stylized form of dance that’s constantly evolving and even varies wildly from teacher to teacher. But some elements do remain constant: it’s theatrical (prepare to ham it up!); it’s high-energy; and kick-ball-change.
Intermediate/Advanced Jazz - Ready for Broadway (at least according to your cats)? Come strut your stuff in this more challenging, choreography-based class.
Jazz Funk - What do you get when you cross jazz with hip hop? Jazz funk! This class combines the classic flow style of jazz with the percussive, rhythmic movements of hip hop, choreographed to pop songs. Bring your inner music video vixen!

Therapeutic Pilates - This is our most traditional Pilates class, following the STOTT method, and will be the best fit for those new to Pilates. Exercises are designed to help those recovering from injury or working on building up strength after an absence from activity. The first three-quarters of the class features group exercises, with the last quarter dedicated to individualized exercises for clients based on their specific needs.
Advanced Therapeutic Pilates - Perfect for those looking for a more rigorous approach to strengthening or a deeper dive into learning about your own physiology. This class features exercises that help you locate and target specific muscles and focus on how you’re using them, with an emphasis on correct alignment. Many of the classes are centered around a specific part of the body, providing a full lesson on how to keep that area functioning at its maximum potential and pain free.
Beginning Tap - For those totally new to tap, practicing beginners, and those feeling a little rusty! Work on basic tap steps and sequences, using repetition to build muscle memory and learn rhythms. Tap shoes not required; clean sneakers will work just fine!
Intermediate/Advanced Tap - This class is for tappers who have some experience and are looking for more challenge. Classes begin with learning sequences, which are strung together into a longer dance over the course of the class. Those who are ready will have the opportunity to add in advanced “tricks”!
