Summer Class Schedule

The following class schedule will be offered from June 3 through August 24, 2024. Registration opens Friday, May 24.

Gentle Stretch & Strengthen

This class is designed for students that feel a standard exercise class is too intense. We will use principles from mind body exercise methods such as Pilates and GYROKINESIS®, along with proper form, to strengthen our muscles and increase your range of motion. Small props like balls, chairs, and bands will be added to help achieve our goals. This class may be helpful to those recovering from injury or with chronic injuries.

Silver Slippers

Ballet class designed for individuals ages 50 and older. This class begins with gentle movements at the barre and includes center work and progressive combinations that travel across the floor. The pace of the class is adjusted to allow for all abilities to feel challenged while focusing on increasing coordination, balance, and grace.

Intermediate Modern

This course will touch on some of the fundamentals of modern dance, such as the emphasis on the ground, the use of center, efforts/qualities of movement, and space and rhythmic complexity with personal expression as the ultimate goal. Floor work, standing warm-up, and progressions across the floor are all components of this class. Students who are currently taking Intermediate Ballet, Advanced Ballet, or have previous Modern experience are encouraged to join.

Tuesdays 6:00-7:00pm


This Pilates class contains a system of classic Pilates fundamentals as well as a blend of yoga postures and gentle stretching specifically designed for dancers. This class is recommended for all levels of adult movers. Adaptations for each exercise are eagerly provided to accommodate all individuals. The class begins with breathing and is followed by basic mat work and gentle stretching. A variety of exercises on all 4’s (tabletop position), low back strengthening postures, and core work is provided. The mission is to balance the strength and awareness of the body and to find connections that assist each individual to move efficiently and comfortably, both in class and in daily life activities.
