Adult Class Descriptions

Adult Modern             Mondays         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.

PILATES CONDITIONING      TUESDAYS 3-4PM                   DANIELLE ZACK

Pilates (pronounced puh-lah-teez and not pie-lates) 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 exercisers 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 yoga mat from home if you have one, or borrow a BDC mat at no charge.

Beginning Ballet        wednesdays     2:30-3:45pm       kim holloway

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.

Adult Tap                     Fridays           2:30-3:30pm       Laura miller

Tap is one of the great American dance forms and we are delighted to offer a beginning level Tap Class for adults. Laura teaches basic 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!
