In addition to these four programs, we’re also adding more sections of your favorite classes:

Zumba – What can we say, you guys are crazy about Zumba so we have no choice but to keep giving you more.

When: Fridays at 6 p.m. with Lehla
Where: Major Moment

(Note that the 6 p.m. Wednesday Art Museum Zumba Toning class will also become regular Zumba for a while as our Toning instructor is off on maternity leave!)

Time and Location Changes

We tried not to impact the current schedule too much but there were a few cases where we had to shift classes around:

Pilates – Timaree will be taking over Pilates on Sundays at noon at Major Moment, just after Dance Party Boot Camp.

Advanced Beginner Ballet – We heard that work schedules kept several dancers from getting to class, so the Monday night section now starts an hour later, at 7 p.m.

Tuesday Zumba/Impact Jazz – To accommodate large crowds, Jaime’s 7 p.m. Zumba class will now be held at the Arts Parlor in South Philly. There will still be an 8 p.m. section at Major Moment taught by Veronica, following Kathy’s Impact Jazz, now at 7 p.m.
