Ballet & Core Conditioning

This class combines the precision and technique of the Vaganova method of classical ballet with toning and core strengthening exercises. By combining the leg and feet work of ballet with difficult toning moves in the core and upper body, we will develop an integrated sense of strength to become stronger athletes and dancers overall. We will also work with classical repertoire from famous ballets such as La Bayadere and Paquita to enhance our understanding of the art form.

Aerial Yoga

Aerial yoga merges yoga with an aerial silk hammock. Suspended at seat height, the hammock is a prop, intended to assist alignment, deepen awareness and relaxation, and provide immediate benefits of spinal decompression. With the weight of the body partially or fully supported, students explore and create space in the body; finding a balanced and free expression of each pose.

Instructor: Sj

Instructor: Sj

Aerial Silk

Extend dance, grace, and strength from ground to sky.  Aerial silk artists mesh the beauty of dance with gymnastic strength to create a breath-taking cascade of movement on elegantly flowing fabric.  Those willing to explore their curiosity of this ethereal art form will quickly build their upper body strength, tighten their core, and increase their flexibility. An absolute challenge for mind and body; come defy gravity by climbing, dropping, and contorting on fabric.

Instructor: Bethany
