Online Adult Dance & Fitness Classes

Dancewave Virtual Adult Classes now offer a flexible payment structure to ensure that our classes remain a dynamic, accessible and equitable opportunity for all. Our new format features a rotating monthly class schedule, providing you with exciting seasonal offerings and a diverse roster of Teaching Artists. Classes are accessible with your free Zoom account. Please register no less than 30 minutes before class begins – classes with less than 5 students registered at the beginning of class may be subject to cancellation.

Dancewave Adult Classes take place weekly Mondays through Fridays for four weeks at a time. Each new monthly schedule will be announced two weeks in advance, with a week-long Flash Sale where you can sign up for our Unlimited Monthly Class Card (see details below).

Our new virtual class format is designed to keep you connected, moving and having fun at home all week long! Join our Mailing List to get the latest updates:



NEW: Sliding Scale Pricing

Base Price: $10/single class
Subsidizes a portion of the real costs associated with producing our quality classes.

Discount Price: $5/single class
If the base price proves cost-prohibitive, we invite you to use our $5 off discount code 5OFF2020 during checkout. Available for single drop-in classes only.

Sustainer Price: $15/single class
For those who are able to pay more, you are invited to add a $5 donation to your class purchase during checkout. Your donations help to sustain our programming by covering a greater portion of the real costs associated with producing these quality classes.

Additional donations beyond your class purchase support Dancewave’s affordable programming and Teaching Artist engagements organization-wide.

THURSDAYS 7:00-8:00pm EDT: BARRE VIDA with AUTUMN OFTEDAL

Taught by Autumn Oftedal
REGISTER DROP-INS:

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: HIP HOP with ALICIA HUTCHINSON

Taught by Alicia Hutchinson
REGISTER DROP-INS:

Hip Hop is a fun and highly energetic class for all dancers. Learn basic Hip Hop vocabulary, rhythms, musicality, phrasing and choreography to popular hip hop music, then get the chance to perform longer phrases that incorporate these moves. This popular class is a fun way to increase confidence through movement. All interested in Hip Hop are welcome to this class, choreography is built throughout class and can be modified to challenge beginner and more advanced dancers alike!
