Tease - Adv. Beg. with Derek
A good sweat. Super fun and the instructor is great!
Tease - Adv. Beg. with Derek
Sassy and fun
Ballet - Beg. with Samantha
Really good class! If you're a brand new beginner who has never taken a ballet class ever and no knowledge of the basic positions, this will be too fast paced for you. (They do have true into classes offered outside of classpass)
Hip Hop - Adv. Beg. with Derek
Great workout with Derek. He moves pretty quickly so you gotta pay attention. He does go over the movements a few times before asking if its ok to move on. Class is pretty big. Get there on time or you will be in the back. He does split the bass up to see how good the moves have been done. Goes so fast a hour seems like a minute! Loves it
AfroDance - All Levels with Samantha
Samantha was wonderful! Great energy, good workout yet still accessible for a first-timer. I would definitely go back and recommend this class.
Tease - Adv. Beg. with Derek
One of the best parts of the week
Tease - Adv. Beg. with Derek
Super fun as usual
Hip Hop - Adv. Beg. with Derek
super fast choreo - beginners beware!
Hip Hop - Adv. Beg. with Derek
Class was face paced but fun! It went by very quickly by the time I checked my watch it was over! ...he doesnt go over each movement with each person you must be able to keep up! He did go over the series of movements a few times to make sure we had it down before adding more movements though. I Will be back
Dancer Conditioning - Strength & Stretch - All Levels with Angela
It felt like a free rec center class
