Dance Dance, Mommy! A course for busy Moms
It's time to get out of the house and move! No formal dance training is required to enjoy this course, but rather, a desire to move to upbeat music and to join a group of mothers who need a break from the weekly routine. Each session will begin with a Ballet and Pilates based warm-up to loosen joints while building core muscle strength. It will conclude by learning dance routines based on the works of the profound Broadway choreographer Michael Bennett. Mr. Bennett's cannon of musicals include Bells are Ringing, Promises Promises, Company, Follies, A Chorus Line, and Dream Girls.
