Ballet and Barre Classes
All barre classes begin with 10-15 minutes of stretching for proper warmup, and close with a brief cool-down.
Ballet Basics • Children (6-17) and Adults (18+)
Ballet stretching, positions and combinations at the barre with floor work following. Slow, gentle, paced movement for the first half of the class followed by quicker tempo and work on floor combinations, turns, and jumps. Enjoyable and uplifting class. Tailored to your skill level and pace. Over the weeks and months students will learn more ballet vocabulary, technique and advance in skill level.
Classical ballet music provided.
Gentle Stretching for Flexibility • Adults (18+)
Gentle stretches at the barre and on the yoga mat focused on slowly increasing flexibility. Movements based on dance principal and technique. Great for fitness beginners or older individuals. This is a mindful, relaxing lesson for those who do not seek an intense or challenging workout. Movements tailored to your skill level and ability. Great for corporate wellness workshops. Barre not required; can do stretches standing up or on yoga mats.
Relaxing, calming music provided.
Barre Tone & Strength • Adults (18+)
Fast-paced barre fitness class focusing on working your abs, legs, glutes, and arms, switching up the workout between at-the-barre stretches and movements and cardio/isometrics/stretching work on the mat. May incorporate 2 or 3 lb dumbbells, small fitness balls, and fitness bands if desired. For those who seek a really good overall body workout. Great for barre workout beginners or current fans! You will feel the burn and see results with repeated classes! For repeated classes, workouts will switch up moves and routines per class.
High-energy dance music provided.
Barre and Boxing • Adults (18+)
Fast-paced barre fitness class very much like our Barre Tone & Strength class, adding basic boxing-derived arm strikes and movements to further tone and strengthen your arms and upper body. Basic kickboxing moves may be incorporated according to ability/skill. Move and dance to the beat while also swinging your arms a bit, boxer-style, using proper, basic striking technique! Adding dynamic upper and lower body movements according to your ability/strength/skill level/pace. Fun class and a great, high-intensity workout.
Weighted boxing fitness gloves may be used (1-2lb weights). High-energy dance music provided.
