This class is mostly for women who are either single or who have a partner who does not want to or is unable to dance.

 

The wake up and dance class will give students the tools they need in order to go out on a dance floor and feel comfortable dancing with a variety of partners in all of the basic 6 dances. There will be no shag dancing. We might do East Coast swing but not West coast swing.

 

 

We will cover a number of steps in each dance. Students will learn the timing of each of the dances, the characteristics that distinguishes each dance from other dances and the proper body and arm positions. The skills necessary to be a good follower like how to keep time and to do turns will be learned and practiced in each class. We will cover at least 4 different dances. There is a minimum of 8 and maximum of 10 students per class. Check your schedule and see which day is best for you.

 

Note from instructor: This class is similar to the beginner teacher class I used to teach to new staff members in New York. No partner is required. In fact aside from my demonstration there will be no partners in the class. This is not one of those classes where they say no partner is required. This is a class more like a line dance where there are no partners.

Class Description

Vinyasa flow yoga is all about breath, energy, and learning about our bodies and what they’re trying to tell us. Marisa will lead the group through guided meditation, allowing you to bring an intention into mind, and clear out all of that inner dialogue we all carry around with us, and segue into a flowing sequence of movement that will help to both strengthen, and restore the body, so it’s ready for whatever life throws our way! You will learn about engaging the core, keeping the spine safe, and what it means to use the breath as a guide for movement. Flexibility, balance, and grace are three points that Marisa (being a former dancer and musical theater performer) focuses on, to help you get the most out of practice. The class will end with an extended meditation to reach ultimate relaxation, and peace.

This is a 6 week session.
