DANCE  CLASSES

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.

OCTOBER  2020 Schedule:

 

Wednesdays 6:30p - 7:30p Rhythm & Motion

 

Where: In person/indoors at GMCF Downtown/50 Main St Montpelier with Covid precautions in place

OR virtual via Zoom 

 

What: Rhythm and Motion is an invigorating dance-workout program that's celebrating 40 years of sweaty success out of San Francisco, CA. Classes blend a range of approaches & music genres to celebrate the sprit, expressiveness, and freedom of movement. Great for all levels, this class includes technical warmups, calisthenic moves for strength, vigorous choreography practiced with ‘break downs’ as needed, and finishes with a series of mindful stretches. Emma has been on their faculty as teacher and choreographer since 2011 and headed the R&M Vermont satelite program in January '20.

 

How to Sign up & prepare: Sign up in advance at GMCF. Bring a water bottle and yoga mat if you have one! I can bring mats for those w/o one courtesy of GMCF. If attending virtually, we'll send you the link once your name is on the roster!

Sundays 11a:   Emma's Sunday Service DANCE CLASS:
 

Where: In person/indoors at GMCF Downtown/50 Main St Montpelier with Covid precautions in place

OR virtual via Zoom 

 

What: Dance is medicine. Using a format similar to my Rhythm and Motion class, I share my own library of choreography & have us practice a range of ‘classic’ and contemporary dance moves. Focus is on fluidity, playfulness, mind-body connection, ab moves, and the endless benefits of using that expressive body of yours while connecting to music. 

 

How to sign up & prepare: Sign up in advance at GMCF. If taking virtually, we'll send you the zoom link once your name is on the roster. Make sure you have some room to MOVE and a yoga mat or comfortable space for floor work is recommended.
