Classes

NEW! Contemporary Ballet
This class incorporates elements of both classical ballet and modern dance. Contemporary ballet has roots in the classical technique and vocabulary, but uses those roots as a place to explore, and experiment. A live percussionist brings life and energy to the class. A minimum of two to three years of dance experience is recommended for this class.

Classical Ballet
Learn from the finest teachers to develop grace, elegance and precision. Ballet is a beautiful art form based on formalized movements and positions of the arms, feet, and body. Learning the art of ballet develops agility, control, speed, lightness, and grace.

Contemporary
Drawing on both classical ballet and modern dance, this class explores total body movement, use of breath and weight and changes in rhythm, speed and direction. Classes begin with a strengthening barre warm up, followed by centre work including jumps and travelling sequences.

Mat Pilates
Strengthen and tone your entire body, focusing on the core, with essential mat exercises. Dynamic and flowing movements help increase flexibility and joint mobility, enhance stability as well as improve body awareness. No previous dance experience necessary.

Full Body Barre
A full body workout like no other. This online barre class combines barre exercises to strengthen and lengthen the lower body, with light weights and floor exercises to build strength in the upper body and core. No previous dance experience necessary.
