online Dance classes!
We launched an online platform on April 1! Check it out!
Nearly all of our regular programming is available, though class times have shifted slightly.
Learning online is different than learning in person. It's not for everyone. We understand that for some folks, we will have to find other ways to connect with you during quarantine. Similarly, learning to teach online is certainly an adjustment. This is an experiment for us as a business and community, during a bizarre and challenging cultural moment. It's no small feat especially as a quick pivot given totally unforeseen global circumstances. Big thanks to our teaching staff for their willingness to go with the unpredictable flow.
Drop in classes like waacking, b, house, hip hop, Afro-club, Afro-Cuban, and more are up and running! Many of your are familiar with these classes in a one hour format. Take note that online classes will be 45 minutes instead. We suggest getting yourself ready to go 10 min before class: clear some space in your living room, get some water nearby, and start to warm yourself. Not sure how to warm yourself up? Well, jumping jacks are tried and true. Roll your ankles one by one. Do a push up or two (or ten). You could also put on a favorite mid-tempo song and just go whatever feels good, going slowly, taking it easy. The goal is to get your heart rate up and mobilize your joints.
For those you want to dance it out every day, membership packages are still available. Membership online includes all live-streaming classes as well as recordings of classes from the last 30 days, so you will have lots to practice. It's also an opportunity to try a class you may have been curious about, but where too shy to test drive in person. Well, now is the time!
We miss you already.
