Introducing Wacky Wednesday

a rotating workshop series with classes for all levels

Circle of teens doing improv

We’re excited to announce a new workshop series called Wacky Wednesdays!

Each Wednesday, we’ll have rotating workshops with guest teaching artists. All workshops are open to absolute beginners, meaning you don’t need any related experience to participate. Just bring your curiosity and an open mind!


for ages 12 to adult

📅 Wednesdays starting September 13

🕡 6:45-8pm

First up – 4 weeks of Improv Theater with Liz Butler and Ben Jardine!

Improv theater is the practice of building a scene or a story one piece at a time, in the moment, without any planning or scripting. Working with a group of others, or by yourself, you create a supportive environment where anything goes. It’s a joyous, uplifting, and deeply rewarding exercise where you can learn about yourself and have fun in the process.

Swing for Teens and Adults

📅 Thursdays

🕓 6:45-7:45pm

for beginner and intermediate dancers ages 12 to adult

This class teaches the partnered basics of East Coast Swing with a particular emphasis on rhythm, artistry, and jazz dance history. We’ll explore movement patterns that establish the foundations of Lindy Hop as a social, vernacular jazz dance. The goal is to boost your confidence to hit the dance floor and have fun, while celebrating the music, movement, and spirit of the Harlem Renaissance and Swing Era! 

No partner necessary – come as you are!

Ballet Zen is Back!

for beginner and intermediate levels, ages 21+

📅 Thursdays

🕑 2-3:30pm

Learn gentle core strengthening exercises at the beginning of class, followed by ballet barre and basic center work, with a guided deep relaxation and short meditation to close. This class emphasizes leg and core strength, weight shifts, and balance work while learning ballet technique. 

These skills are useful for fall prevention – so important as we age – and combined here with beautiful music, the gracefulness of ballet movement, mental focus and relaxation, students will have a holistic movement class experience.
