INCOME-SENSITIVE PRICINGDancewave’s sliding scale pricing model is designed to respond to our community’s changing needs. To that end, we have identified three price options to provide financial flexibility and support, while ensuring access to our programming:
MONDAYS 7:00-8:00pm EDT: AFRO-CARIBBEAN with SADE BULLY
In this energetic and creative introduction to Afro-Caribbean movement, students will explore the way their bodies move to a variety of percussive sounds and rhythms. Dancewave Teaching Artist Sade Bully will bring in styles from Jamaica, Haiti, and surrounding Caribbean cultures while opening space for self-expression, self-empowerment, and exploration for participants of all levels.
TUESDAYS 7:00-8:00pm EDT: DAILY DEFUSION with MADELINE WARRINER
A fusion of movement, mobility, and mindfulness. Combining cardiovascular exercise, strength training, yoga asana, Pilates, and mindfulness practices, Madeline’s DeFusion classes take a holistic approach to mental and physical health. Daily DeFusion provides a variety of accessible classes that fuse different modalities of movement, mindfulness, and mobility practices into one daily practice.
WEDNESDAYS 7:00-8:00pm EDT: Modern with DANIEL FETECUA
In this modern dance class, Daniel Fetecua teaches based on the principles of the limón technique with a little twist of the Colombian dance traditions and the German Tanztheater! Join as we explore weight transfers, movement, and fluidity through modern sequences and choreography.
THURSDAYS 7:00-8:00pm EDT: BARRE VIDA with AUTUMN OFTEDAL
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. Occasional props are used 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. Class consists of demanding rigorous muscle targeted exercises, though all movement levels are welcome. Be prepared to push yourself! Use a mat!
FRIDAYS 7:00-8:00pm EDT: ZUMBA PARTY with ASHLEA BONDS
Zumba classes feature Latin rhythms set to high-energy pop music and international beats. Before you know it, you’ll be getting fit and will feel your energy levels soaring! There’s no other fitness class like a Zumba Fitness Party. It’s easy to do, effective and totally exhilarating, often building a deep-rooted community among returning students. This is a medium-paced, follow-along class with basic sequencing, suitable for all levels.
