Late Spring 2024 Open Level Pilates Mat Technique
Looking good and feeling good are more connected to alignment than you realize. We call our classical Pilates mat classes "technique" classes because it isn't really what you do that makes the change--it's how you do it. Pilates teaches your body to work for itself rather than against itself, which is why it's the perfect salve for tired, aching bodies and the perfect complement to any training regime. By systematically stretching and strengthening your body as an integrated whole, challenging core “powerhouse” muscles, and rewiring faulty mechanics, you'll restore alignment, streamline your musculature, and work out muscular imbalances that otherwise lead to aches and pains.

Company B Intensive
Summer dance immersions are a wonderful precursor to the full blown dance intensives dancers age 10+ are ready for as they continue to progress in their technique. Intensives are for experienced dancers, Level Ballet II +, only. They involve a daily ballet class, longer technique classes in general (1-1.5hrs classes vs 45min-1hr immersion classes), and a 2nd morning technique class in either modern or jazz styles. Afternoon enrichment classes will include a mix of hip hop, dance composition, Pilates, pointe, improvisation, and rehearsal for an outdoor fall performance like Flatbush Frolic rather than an end-of week showcase. The additional class time gives us an even greater ability to work on advancing steps/vocabulary and help dancers who have had significant time off during the summer to regain lost ground before we get back to fall classes (which allows fall classes to progress more quickly!).
