Thursdays, 7:00 – 9:00pm

A group of friendly folks who dance for fun. Most dances are circle and line dances. No partners or costumes are needed. Although we do kick up our heels sometimes, many dances are easy. This is dancing for non-dancers. We dance traditional folk dances from all over the world. A majority of the dances we know are from the Balkan and Middle East regions. New dancers are encouraged to come early as some of the dances will be taught for them. After 8:00PM most dances are done without teaching but all are still encouraged to join in. Children are welcome with an adult if they come to dance. There is no place for the children to play. The exotic, recorded music is very unusual and half the fun.

Cost: Minimum of $3.00 per person per evening
Session: On-going
The Instructors
Many folks have been dancing for decades and it could be Jay, Carol, Doug, Edith, Anna or Kate who teaches any individual dance. Dances have been collected from workshops and dancing with groups all over the country. We are open, friendly and democratic, and most are willing to step up and keep the group going.

Intro to Bellydance – All Ages

Tuesdays, 7:30 – 8:30pm

Bellydance has its roots in ancient folk dances across the Middle East and northern Africa, with Egypt often described as the homeland of this exquisite, energetic dance. This class will teach the movement concepts that form the foundation of most styles of bellydance as well as condition participants both new and familiar to the rigors of dance. The emphasis of bellydance is, surprisingly, the hips! We’ll be focusing on these as we learn movements such as the hip circle, slides, bumps, hip drops and the famous “shimmy”. Throughout this ongoing course we’ll work on mini choreographies, “combinations” and improvise together. As a component of this class we’ll also take time to focus on core strength, balance and movement as an emotional outlet. Our goal will be to relax and reset ourselves to happiness through joyous movement! Shoes are not necessary, but not forbidden. Ballet slippers are welcome. Please bring some water so you can stay hydrated while we have fun!

Cost: $10 per class; $60 for a 10-class pass

Chakradance – 7 keys to freedom – Adults

Tuesdays 7:00pm – 8:00pm

In each Chakradance class you will be guided into your own experience of each chakra using specific music, guided visualizations, mandala art-making and meditations.

Dancing the seven chakras is like dancing into seven different inner landscapes, each with its own lessons, meanings and stories. We explore our instincts, sexuality, and power, how we love and communicate, our intuition and our spirituality.

The process of Chakradance involves letting the movements emerge spontaneously as you surrender to the music of each chakra. It feels like entering into a waking dream. You may see images in your mind’s eye, recall memories or gain insights related to each chakra. You may also feel emotions or physical sensations. It’s a gentle unfolding, an awakening of who you really are.

Cost: $10 per hour
Instructor: Amanda Dunaway
Session: Sept. 8 – Oct. 20
More Information: Babywearing ok for parents, children ages 7 and up are also welcome to attend with parent.
Amanda Dunaway
Amanda has always been intrigued by the power of guided imagery. As an ancient practice this is an amazing healing tool for tapping into the chakras and how they play out in our lives. She offers guidance through the moving meditation in hopes you can increase the flow and feel more bliss within. Amanda was a licensed as a Chakradance facilitator in 2014. She has worked with guided imagery since 2010 as part of her doula practice (guided births).

Saturdays 12:00 – 1:25pm and Sundays 3:00 – 4:25pm

This class will move more quickly and is designed for those familiar with modern dance and contemporary techniques. We will use improvisational practices to warm up, followed by more technical exercises to get students moving through space. With each week we will expand upon previous exercises, building throughout the duration of the session. By the end of the six weeks, students will feel more comfortable with dance and anatomical terminology, have a heightened ability to pick up and remember choreography, and have a better sense of their weight and body placement.

Cost: $90 for 6-week session

Modern Dance – Ages 3 – 4

Wednesdays, 4:00 – 4:30pm

We know how hard it can be to find Modern Dance classes for children, especially this age group. That’s why we’re thrilled to offer this class! In Modern, we teach your child the joy of movement: in its creativity, freedom, and power to express! Modern is ML&Co.’s favorite technique, because it’s about more about innovation and individuality, and less about traditionalism and rules. Think: barefoot, creative movement, and moving through space with different kinds of energy and flow!

Fall Session/Cost: 12 weeks, $105 or $27.50/month for 4 months (September 8 – December 18; no classes October 14 – 16 or November 3, 11, and 25 – 27)

Mommy & Me / Daddy & Me Dance – Ages 19 months – 2.5 years & Parent

Wednesdays, 10:00 – 1:30am

What an amazing time for a child’s early development! They are focusing less on mechanics of standing and are doing more, and exploring more. What an exciting opportunity for you to take part in this development through a Mommy & Me or Daddy & Me “dance” class! Creative movement is a fantastic way to help young children become independent and confident as they grow and increase their motor skills. We will explore movement and experiment and play together in fun and energetic ways, working as partners. The classroom setting teaches listening skills and manners (further supported by the parents’ presence). We will learn very basic movements, listen to music, play with props, and use play as a mechanism for learning. (Same guardian per child for entire session, please. Parents are responsible for their child at all times during the class.)

Cost: $57 for 6-week session
Fall 1 Session: September 14 – October 11 (registration deadline Thursday, September 3)
Fall 2 Session: November 2 – December 20 (registration deadline Monday, October 26)
