Adult Class Descriptions

Adult Modern    

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     

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

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

adult tap  

Tap is one of the great American dance forms and we are delighted to offer Tap 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!

Aerial Conditioning 

Ready to get your butt kicked? Drop in to Aerial Conditioning for an intense 1-hour strength training circuit, using your bodyweight and aerial silks to keep things interesting. Whether you're supplementing your personal aerial practice, or you just want a workout that's more engaging than lifting weights, you can expect to work up a sweat in this full-body fitness class!

Intro to Aerial   

Itching to embrace your inner primate by climbing, hanging, and spinning upside-down? Intro to Aerial is the place to learn the fundamentals of aerial acrobatics. Come learn how to climb, invert, and defy gravity on the aerial silk, all while building upper body strength and body awareness in a fun 1-hour weekly class. Expert instruction and industry-standard equipment keep you safe as you challenge your physical and mental limits in this demanding discipline. Intro to Aerial is appropriate for *all* beginner adult students--no one is too old or too out of shape to get started!
