Adult Classes

Counterpoint Ballet: Adult Class (1 hour) is a fun and affirming technique class for the ballet enthusiast, the ballet-curious, even the ballet skeptic. In Counterpoint Ballet, we embrace the powerful beauty of this iconic dance form, gaining strength, flexibility and agility. Students are supported at their own level as we progress through barre exercises, centerwork, and combinations that travel across the floor. No previous experience necessary! Ballet slippers recommended; bare feet welcome.

Weekly Flex (1 hour): A ballet-inspired workout designed to develop core strength, lengthen muscles, improve posture and increase stamina. Barre exercises provide a meditative strengthening and toning routine, then it’s down to the mat for some Pilates-based floorwork. Uptempo cardio dance rounds out the hour. Each component of Weekly Flex can be practiced throughout the week, wherever/whenever the mood strikes. Back in Spring ’23!

Book and Bar(re): a combination book club, dance party and cocktail hour. A short but robust dance warm up followed by light stretching, adult beverages and low-stakes literary discussion. Each class  culminates in a group improv inspired by the evening’s literary analysis (character dynamics, tone, theme, structure….it’s all fair game). BYOBook, BYOBottle…We’ll provide the Barre. Hilarity guaranteed.

Adult Fitness Dance (1 hour): Our certified Zumba instructor, Tiffany Joseph, is also a fantastic Hip Hop, yoga and Afro-Caribbean teacher! In this class, her skills and passions combine to produce a SUPER FUN, high-intensity dance party. Contact Tiffy at for details. 

Alexander Technique: Balance and Ease on the Floor (1 hour):Experience movement with ease while applying the principles of the Alexander Technique. This extended session on the floor invites students to practice gentle movement through the lens of the AT, focusing on breath, dynamic balance and optimal coordination through the whole mind body. Movement structures and patterns are drawn from such practices as Bartenieff Fundamentals, Yoga, and various Dance Techniques. For scheduling, contact instructor Kate Martel
