At Urban Movement Arts we want you to bring YOU, to be yourself, to find your own groove, your own flavor. Are you doubting yourself, scared to dance, wondering: Am I too old? To big? Too small? Too inflexible? Too busy? Don’t let those voices win! Stop that mess and come take a class with us. Everyone and anyone can get in shape with time. It helps when it’s something that feels goods, that’s fun: like dancing! Are you worried about taking Adult Hip Hop classes because you have two left feet? We understand. So many people think they have two left feet when they first start taking dance classes. Over time, it gets easier. It takes practice. Practice means coming to class as consistently as you can. This means you’ll get to know all the other two-left-feet folks out there too. It’s a lot less intimidating once you realize most people were scared when they took their first adult dance class.
Feel like you don’t have the time? We have many hard working moms and dads coming through our doors, trying to balance work and kids and staying healthy. We understand! Yes, we love when you’re on time, but sometimes the baby sitter is late or a kid’s shoe is gone missing. If you’re a few minutes late: no stress. Warm up and jump in when you’re ready. Getting some workout in is better than none at all! Besides, we fully believe EVERYONE has a right to learn to dance, no matter their background or current ability. In addition to parents, our classes are also home to full time students who need to sweat out the stress, as well hard woking au-pairs (talk to us about our discounted price!) looking for some time to themselves. There’s doctors, lawyers, nurses, etc. And yes, there are also professional dancers who come to class. They’re here to learn too! Here at Urban Movement Arts, dance is for anyone willing to sweat it out.
