New in 2024!

February 7, 2024 

We know, the year is already well underway but it’s taken us a while to get all these exciting additions posted because there are SO. MANY! From more of your favorites (Ballet Basics, Pilates & Bollywood) to a debut Tap Beginner Bootcamp series, our dance floor is buzzing with energy!

MORE CLASSES

Some of our longstanding classes have been packed lately, so we’re adding more sections to give you more room to spread out and more opportunities to dance!

Ballet Basics

Hit the barre in this intro class, packed with all the fundamentals you need to get your footing in ballet.

  • Sundays at 12 pm with Beverly, starting Feb. 18
  • Rittenhouse main studio (1923 Chestnut St)
  • *Note: Due to this addition, Ballet III will start a half hour later, as well as the Pointe class after that

Bollywood

Warm up with a few easy to follow cardio routines, then learn a combination suitable for beginners and experienced dancers alike!

  • Thursdays at 5:30 pm with new instructor Stephanie, starting Feb. 22
  • Rittenhouse main studio
  • *Note: Jazz Cardio Fusion with Tiffany shifts a half hour to 6 pm, in the lower level studio

Pilates

Strengthen and lengthen your core and lower body in this mat based workout. Bring a mat or use one of ours.

  • Sundays at 12 pm with Timaree, starting Feb. 18
  • Tuesdays at 7 pm with Timaree, starting Feb. 20
    • Note: This section will take the place of the Monday night class, which we moved in order to space out the two Pilates options.
  • Rittenhouse lower level studio – space is more limited here so please pre-register to reserve your spot!

Zumba

Ditch the workout, join the dance party! Follow along to infectious Latin and international rhythms.

  • Mondays at 6:30 pm with Tiel, starting Feb. 26
  • Rittenhouse lower level studio — preregister to secure your spot as Tiel’s Zumba often has a waitlist!
    • Note: We’re adding this section to help alleviate crowding and waitlists for Tiel’s 5:30 pm Zumba class. Both of Tiel’s Monday Zumba sections will have the same playlist. We respectfully ask that students only sign up for one section to keep space available for all who wish to attend. Capacity will also be more limited for this new section since it will be held in our smaller lower level studio.
