drop-in classes:

 

BEGINNER BALLET
Online or In-Person

Beginner Ballet is designed for students who are new or returning to ballet. This class will provide an opportunity to gain a strong foundation of technique. Moving at a slower pace, class will focus on ballet positions, vocabulary and proper alignment.

 

INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED BALLET
Online or In-Person

This class is designed for those who have taken at least two years of current ballet training or completed the introductory ballet class. Emphasis in intermediate ballet is placed on developing technical strength and more advanced movement qualities.

 

YAMUNA BODY ROLLING
Available Online Only

This full body workout utilizes the powerful effect of a simple Yamuna Body Rolling (YBR) ball. The YBR ball challenges and unlocks the uneven surfaces of the musculoskeletal system. You will perform exercises using your body weight and small movements to release tension from the neck, back, legs muscles and more. At the end of class, you should feel energized, strengthened and encouraged ready to embrace the rest of the day!

For class, participants will need a pearl ball and a set of black calf balls at minimum. The full YBR set is ideal, but not required. Participants can purchase equipment for class here.
