Ballet 1

Get moving in the classical style without the intimidation or stress often associated with Ballet. We will take plenty of time to explain terminology and address questions. A class that is user-friendly and paced to bring ballet to the people. Working with David and Amalia is like ballet therapy full of joy, support and grace.


Ballet 2/3

A class to build flexibility and maintain muscle tone at the barre, with the intent to “let loose” with some juicy center exercises. We will place an emphasis on developing a wide range of classical steps and learning a solo choreography.

This is a class for beginners interested in exploring their inner urban funkster. Join Amanda as she teaches you the basic grooves and techniques of hip hop. A master of breaking down the sometimes complex nature of the style she will have you walking out of class feeling confident with your steps, excited about the next class and sweaty to the bone! If you are ready to challenge your funk and cheer each other on, this is the class for you as Ms. Zinc always delivers upbeat, positive vibes while jamming out to great music.

Hip Hop 2

Check out the hip hop description above and cut down the reps, amp up the intensity and add more hard-hitting choreography. We will sweat!
