“Ballet Bod Conditioning” Class for Adults


Ballet Bod Conditioning is ballet-inspired, incorporating a ballet barre and maybe some plies and pirouettes here and there into the workout. Essentially, this class mixes elements of Pilates, dance, yoga and functional training, and the moves are choreographed to motivating music.

This is a 6 week session form August 30th-Oct. 4th on Wednesdays from 8:15-9:15.  Come join the fun!

Our Bender All Stars wrapped gifts and provided Fry’s food gift certificates for their adopted families. DanceMotion, our resident performing company, packed bags full of meals for the Kitchen on the Street organization which feeds hungry children.
