Class Descriptions

 

Ballet Sculpt

This amazing leg, hips and stomach shaping and calorie burning class blends techniques from dance with safe, low-impact moves and is specifically designed for the non-dancer. It's like vertical Pilates. It will train the abdominals to act as a "corset" to tighten and flatten your belly, while strengthening the core. But unlike Pilates, the class is on your feet and moving and feels like a fitness class. Be prepared for a lot of leg work and sweat!
