"Marion's leadership, support, and enthusiasm is infectious in the best way, and it's been so wonderful to start dancing again after such a long break. And to the company as a whole, it has been a joy to join in mid way through the year and feel so welcomed into the community. Being in Dancewave's Adult Modern company has kept me accountable to my own hopes to start dancing again..."

Ballet Workout is a beginner and open level class for adults who are new to ballet or returning to ballet. Class begins with a basic barre sequence, followed by movement exercises in center. Focused on developing flexibility, alignment, strength, balance and posture, Ballet Workout is a great complement to your existing fitness practice.
Barre Vida (formerly Barre Fitness) is a total body workout open to women and men 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!

Beginning Adult 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.

Modern Dance Company
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.
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.

Each class includes an invigorating warm-up to build strength and flexibility, across the floor combinations and spirit-lifting choreographies.
