Tuesdays AND Thursdays

$110 for 8 classes

Have you always wanted to try DANCEFIX, our high-energy, adult dance workout class from Heather Britt Dance Collective, but want a crash course in the choreography before jumping in? Sign up for our four-week Intro to DANCEFIX Workshop where students will learn the same routines that we do in our regular classes, as well as a bit of technique, with others who are also new to DANCEFIX. 

Students must register for the entire eight-class series. While you are always welcome to join our regular DANCEFIX classes, participating in this workshop will give you a sense of mastery, community and confidence! 


DANCEFIX

DANCEFIX is a high-energy, adult dance workout class from Heather Britt Dance Collective in Cincinnati, Ohio. Classes feature diverse choreography including everything from hip hop and jazz to Latin and lyrical. Each hour-long session, designed for both new and experienced dancers, includes a short warm-up, a toning session and 45 minutes of original choreography.

Introduction to BalleT

Added by request, this Ballet 101 class will teach you everything you need to know about the basic structure of a ballet class, including stance, foot and arm positions, and common movements. After a few spins around the studio, even the complete novice will be comfortable advancing into the Beginner Ballet class, conveniently scheduled at the same time.

BEGINNER BALLET

Learn the fundamentals of ballet with others new to the art form. This course is designed to teach new students the basic elements of ballet and how to combine them into simple steps. Posture, presence, self-confidence, flexibility and balance are major areas of focus. Even if you have two left feet, this is the perfect place to start.

INTERMEDIATE BALLET

Did you dance throughout childhood and want to revisit your first love? This is the class for you. Build upon your foundation by incorporating a higher degree of detail into your technique. This course moves beyond the fundamentals by exploring increasingly more complex movement and a continued development of vocabulary. Musicality, artistry and strength are major areas of focus.

INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED COMBINED BALLET

This class blends our Intermediate and Advanced curriculum while providing clear instruction for each student's skill level. Intermediate students have the opportunity to explore advanced movement in a safe, guided environment. Advanced students have the opportunity to refine their skills through broadened instruction.

ADVANCED BALLET

Refine your skills in an environment appropriate for the experienced dancer. This course is designed to provide the space and training to continue cultivating your technique.

CONTEMPORARY

This class touches on basic modern principles, movement exploration and improvisation in a safe, inviting atmosphere. Find and explore movement that’s comfortable to you.
