Dance Conditioning

For both dancers and non-dancers, this 45-minute action packed class will tone each major muscle group in the body while focusing on alignment and muscle isolation. Based on Neva's years of teaching Ballet Barre, this unique class is an incredible support for dancers looking to build strength, capacity, and confidence in their dancing, and non-dancers looking to train their bodies the way dancers do! We will focus specifically on positions that are needed for dance, and help to build long, lean muscles and a flexible, graceful body. This technique is incredibly help for stabilizing the joints, learning movement specificity, and moving with confidence.
