Dance program classes begin September 8, 2019, second semester begins January 19, 2020. 


This class will focus on improving core strength and range of movement. We will begin with a warm up to raise the body temperature. Next we’ll focus on sculpting the body including the shoulder girdle, front, sides, back of the torso, hips, thighs and gluteus. Class finishes with stretches and movements to increase range of motion. The purpose of this class is to enrich daily activities with ease of movement, balance and strength. All body types are welcome.
