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.

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.

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.

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!
