-a long strong bar ( ie: end of a broom, golf club, flag pole or pinata stick) * the heavier the better

-3 lb. weights (*No heavier than 5lb)

* I bring all my studies to one class: Pilates, GST, A.R.T, Balance Work, Energy medicine and of course love❤️

Testamonials:

I started taking Lisa's Mindful Core class, to help in building "muscle memory" for core alignment and strength in my (newfound) everyday life and activities, primarily in front of a screen. As a result, I've discovered that I'm naturally aligning myself when at my desk, walking the dog and happily/most notably in dance class (primarily a tapper, due to hip issues)! I have "caught" myself correcting my posture and positions "automatically" which has considerably decreased pain and increased range of motion. I can't thank Lisa enough! - Martha L.


The Mindful Core class challenges me to focus on incorporating the strength and balance that is so important in dance. With her broad background in pilates, dance and other disciplines, Lisa is able to quickly define sets of exercises to address each area that we want to work on, as well as always including work on core and posture to help us achieve strength and balance. It's a very engaging hour and has helped my body stability in Lisa's jazz and lyrical dance classes as well as in my everyday life. -Mara Rocaforte

DO YOU WANT TO LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE EVEN BRIGHTER AND SHARE THAT WITH THE  COMMUNITY:

WE HAVE PERFORMANCES TWICE A YEAR ONE IN  NOVEMBER AND ONE IN MARCH. * EVERY ONE IS WELCOME TO JOIN US

Kids – Teens

Creative Dance Choreography

Ages 9 and Up


This class is a nice transition into the teen/adult classes we teach. It is also designed in a similar fashion. There is warming up, stretching, focusing on basic movement techniques, and learning choreography.


Dancers will work together in creating one main choreography piece that they will perform in their November and March showcases. Costumes will be simple and likely something that the participants already own.


This class is intended to be fun, joyful, and supportive of creative self-expression.
