Ballet - Adv. Beg. with Elana
This class is definitely for people with some previous experience. It is very challenging but is also a lot of fun. The instructor is very creative in her combinations and I feel as though I learned a lot
Brazilian Samba - All Levels with Angela
All levels means lower levels, which means a lot of standing around! Parts were a workout but it wasnt high intensity, just learning basic steps. Super fun though!
Brazilian Samba - All Levels with Angela
Good instructor. You leave the studio with a lot of energy and good vibe
Afro-Cuban Jazz - Beg. with Angela
It's a real dance class and not a dance fitness class, so you'll get many more technical notes which is great to improve your form
Hip Hop - Adv. Beg. with Derek
I love this class - but he goes very fast, and no individual attention. Definitely not for newbies.
Ballet - Adv. Beg. with Elana
Great class! I think it was paced closer to intermediate than adv. beg. The instructor was welcoming and professional. I think it would be helpful for her to model the combination first. Usually she just said the phrases of what moves we would do but since this is still a beginner class I was pretty confused at times
Hip Hop - Beg. with Jasmine
This was a GREAT class! it was very challening class but so rewarding. Definitely taking it again!
Brazilian Samba - All Levels with Angela
Pretty hard for beginners.
Jazz - Int. with Derek
Derek is super nice and the class is very efficiently run. We went through a quick warm up, great across the floor, and spent most of our time on a lyrical/contemporary combo.
Brazilian Samba - All Levels with Angela
Fun and challenging! Good for beginners!
