Featured

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.

In the Basement – That’s where it’s at!

In-the-basementHi all,

Feel free to pass this email along to anyone else you think might be interested.

Finally, a heads up that there will be NO CLASSES between June 27th and July July 10th. I will be preparing for and recovering from this year’s FLUX Dance Festival www.fluxdance.ca.

See you soon!

April-May Class Session

Sass-to-class.jpgBring your sass to class!

We’ve been having all kinds of fun in the basement studio! The classes are a gentle-yet-challenging combination of yoga & pilates. All levels and experience are welcome, and I can always offer modifications if you are healing from an injury or something just doesn’t work for your body. Singing along to the soundtrack and swearing are encouraged (it’s good for morale!) 

Join me for another 4 week session in April-May:

Wednesday Fusion 6-7pm will run from April 20 to May 11.

Saturday Fusion 11am-12pm will run from April 23 to May 14.

Fees Four classes for $50, or eight for just $80! Once a class is running, you may drop in for $15. More details on the Class Schedule page.

Classes require at least two students to run. Any cancellations will be posted by April 18th.

Oh What A Night!

Kool--The-Gang-Ladies-Night-517839What do you get when you combine three sassy ladies, a funky soundtrack, lots of core strengthening and a whole bunch of belly laughs? You get Piladies Night! I’m really excited to start this semi-private class back up again.

Tonight’s 8:30 class is full but I’m looking to start more sessions. You and a couple friends can have a pilates-fusion class of your own, and I can help match you with some sassy new friends if yours aren’t available.

I have times available most nights of the week, and prices are very reasonable. Message me if you’re interested and I’ll hook you up!
