Emma’s classes are high energy while suiting the challenge and pace each of her students seek. She brings her background as both a dance artist and fitness trainer to provide mindful instruction, emphasizing choice moments of body awareness and stylistic elements.
Dance is hands down the most dynamic form of cardio and brings a wealth of additional health benefits including coordination, cadence, flexibility, balance, strength, boosts creative spirit, and increases self confidence, awareness, and expression. Most importantly, these classes are ridiculously FUN.

Class Description: Learn both classic and modern movement vocabulary as they blend to create the innovation-inspired 'contemporary' style of dance. We use a more intensive lens than our Sunday dance workout class and follow the typical structure of a traditional dance class which teaches floor/standing barre to warm up before practicing traveling steps and then longer combinations which explore a range of rhythms and techniques.
Come n GET IT.
