This class is for you if you have never danced, but have always wanted to. And, this is for you if you have danced before and want to dance again.
What People Say About the Class
"I haven't danced in years and didn't think I could. This made me feel like a kid again! Besides, it's the best exercise I've gotten in a long time."
"I liked the safe and welcoming space. The fact that I have some limited physical abilities (which are not visible until asked to do some thing that I can not do) was fine with Marna. It was a good overall exercise in movement."
Marna Ares Movement and Dance provides classes in modern dance at the beginning and intermediate level, as well as offering classes in integrated dance that include people with all abilities.
The adult class lasts an hour and fifteen minutes. At the beginning of class we warm up our bodies, from head to toe. Following the warm-up, we get our bodies moving and learn movement phrases. By the end of the class we dance across the floor in both choreographed movements and sequences inspired by movement quality suggestions. I draw on many modern dance techniques, and have trained with the AXIS Dance Company in physically-integrated dance. I welcome all movers!
