All class cards are good for any class listed on this page! Make sure you, the adult, are also a student on your account or your registration form so you can add the class card to that student.

    Ballet

    Ballet without the fuss. Wonder what to wear?  It’s easy: yoga type clothing, soft ballet shoes and long hair secured (for your own protection when pirouetting). For inspiration, watch Lou’s favorite classical dances video with Yo-Yo Ma and Lil' Buck: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9jghLeYufQ and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfEYjKWJ56E

    Thursday 10:00-11:00am – Adult Classical Ballet Conditioning - LF 

    Perfect for those curious to learn about ballet, or those who miss ballet training and long to add some plies and port de bras to their workout regimes without taking a full 90 minute technique class.



    Hip Hop

    Get your groove and cardio on in these high energy classes filled with fun because adults deserve to have fun too. It will motivate and create positive space for you in your life. It encourages being yourself in a positive environment while doing the coolest new and old school dance moves with new and old friends.

    Tuesday 8:00–8:55pm / Thursday 11:00am-12:00pm – Adult Hip Hop Exp. (18+) - JC

    Exp. classes include more intricate choreography. The same portion of a routine will generally be taught on both Tuesday night and Thursday morning of the same week.

    Wednesday 7:00-7:55pm / Tuesday 11:00am-12:00pm – Adult Cardio Jam (18+) - JM 

    A great place for a Hip Hop beginner and anyone looking for the funnest cardio workout around!


    Jazz

    Thursday 8:00-8:55pm – Adult Jazz Int. (18+) - BW

    All that sass and all those jazz hands! This class will include warm-up, progressions, and choreography and is designed for adults with some dance experience (either recently or not so much).


    Modern

    Saturday 11:30am-1:00pm – Teen/Adult Modern Exp. (6th Grade+ to Adult) - BW

    Modern explores the codified techniques of the American Modern Dance Pioneers: Graham, Limon, Cunningham, Horton, and Dunham.  These techniques are considered classical training, but are different than ballet in that they are done barefooted, include floor work, explore a shifting center of balance, and involve full range of motion of the spine.  Most notably modern dance uses ‘parallel’ positions of the hips, as opposed to the ‘turn out’ used for ballet.


    Tap

    You're never fully dressed without a smile, and these classic tap steps never go out of style. Shuffle, shim-sham, and time step away because because adults (and seniors!) deserve to have fun too.

    Monday 8:00-8:55pm – Adult Tap Beg. (18+) - JC

    Wednesday 7:00-7:55pm – Adult Tap Int. (18+) - BW

    Thursday 11:05a-12:00p – Adult Senior Tap Exp. (10% discount 60+) - LC

    For Exp. and Int. classes, some familiarity with tap recommended (even from childhood!). Adult Tap Int. will move to new steps/choreography at a quicker pace than the Senior class.


    Yoga for Dancers

    Tuesday 7:00-7:55pm – Yoga for Dancers (5th+ to Adult) - BW

    Deep stretching and core strengthening sequences and poses developed specifically for dancers (and dance lovers!) to increase flexibility and prevent injuries.  Students will devote time to focusing on the mind-body connection for greater kinesthetic awareness.
