Ballet for Boomers and other Beginners starts Nov 7!

img_1960-cropWoohoo! By popular demand I’m launching an Easy Ballet Class in November.

Mondays 7:30-8:30pm, November 7 to December 19, 2016
DSN Drop-In Dance Centre, 236 Dundas Street, 2nd floor
Fall special: All 7 classes for $70, or Drop in $15

Come out and experience the joy of ballet! This easy class is open to beginners, boomers, and aspiring bun-heads of all kinds. Men and women are welcome, no previous experience required.

In this fun and flowing class we’ll focus on creative expression while moving with poise and grace. A gentle workout for both body and brain that will challenge your memory with patterns and simple choreography. Bizz will guide you through basic ballet technique and positions of the arms and legs. You’ll learn barre and centre work, as well as port de bras (arm movements) and traveling steps. There will be no jumping in this class and only minimal turns.

What to wear? Leggings or yoga pants that show your feet and ankles, with a fitted top or leotard. Ballet shoes are recommended but not required. Skirts may be worn as long as they don’t restrict movement.

Saturday Saturday Saturday!

Sidebar 2Growing up, Saturdays were all about dance class. No matter what my social plans for the day were, ballet had to happen first.As I got older, Saturday became a day for teaching little ones to dance. Later it became a day for teaching yoga to grown-ups.

I’ve been off on Saturdays for the past few months, but it still feels like cheating when I have all morning to drink tea. When I drink enough tea, sometimes I even break a sweat! But a yoga-pilates fusion class is a far better way to warm up for the weekend – and then lunch tastes extra-delicious 🙂

Join me tomorrow for the first of four Saturday Fusion classes from 11am-noon. $15 to drop in or all four for $50. More details on the Class Schedule page. Email bizzvarty@gmail.com to register.
