The Creative Movement workout is a compilation of dance movement, bellydance, barre, pilates, kettlebells, and yoga. This workout will move through various types of programming for levels beginner to advanced. The goal of the workout is to gain a technical foundation of dance movement, increase fluidity and flexibility, increase overall body strength, and explore your body through various mediums.

 

The second cycle of this workout series builds a foundation for intermediate dance technique and functional fitness skills. This cycle is a intermediate barre workout that fuses ballet, dance movement, bodyweight exercise, and yoga into one fun and inspiring class.

 

Creative Movement will run Tuesday and Thursday, but feel free to pick any two days that work for your schedule. Have fun with the workout and find your artist in your athletic journey.
