Adult Class Descriptions

Adult Modern             Mondays (JUL)         7:45-9:00pm       Christiana axelsen

The class is based in Cunningham Technique, a traditional form of modern dance developed by famous choreographer Merce Cunningham, that Christiana discovered as a pathway to strengthen and develop greater articulation in her back after a lower back injury. This class is amazing for people of all backgrounds and abilities to grow their technical skills by finding ease and alignment in their bodies. We use very simple but challenging exercises to play with rhythm, dynamics and patterning. This class is based in the belief that everyone is a dancer.

Beginning Ballet        mondays (AUG)        7:45-9:00pm       whitney mayer

This is a beginner level ballet class which is perfect for people who have always wanted to try ballet and for those who grew up training in ballet and are looking for a gentle way back into dancing. Exercises are designed to slowly build full-body strength, educate students about the basic concepts of ballet technique, and provide an enjoyable, meditative, physical experience for everyone to feel more grounded and strong in their bodies.

PILATES for dancers   TUESDAYS                 3:00-4:00PM       DANIELLE ZACK

BDC is honored to have Danielle Zack, director of the pilates program at Seattle Athletic Club, here on Tuesdays to teach Pilates Mat Classes for dancers. Pilates is similar to yoga but emphasizes your body’s core — the abdomen, obliques, lower back, inner and outer thigh, butt, and so on. For this reason, Pilates develops much of what dancers (and former dancers!) need — strength, flexibility, muscular endurance, coordination, balance, and good posture — with a much lower chance of injury than with other forms of exercise. Bring a mat or borrow a BDC mat at no charge.

Tap fundamentals         Fridays           1:30-2:30pm       Laura miller

Tap is one of the great American dance forms and we are delighted to offer two three week sessions of Tap Fundamentals for adults. Laura teaches tap steps in a joyful, relaxed, personalized class with exercises designed to grow each person's musicality, agility and balance. There are often pairs of free, gently used, donated tap shoes at BDC, so feel free to drop by and try a pair. Then get yourself to class!
