Dance Classes are back this year!  Please join us Saturday from 9am-11am at 17 East Martin St. – FLIGHT space and again at 4pm-6pm Krav Maga Studios, 119 E Hargett St # 100.

9am-10am: Argentine Tango with Marco and Elise at 17 East Martin St. – FLIGHT space

Marco and Elise will make the complexity of Argentine tango accessible to everyone in a playful way. In this introductory class, they will do a warm up game, and learn the fundamentals of improvising a dance with a partner: the walk, the embrace, the cross. Come and play with them and the music!

10am-11am: Nia with Laura Ghantous at 17 East Martin St. – FLIGHT space

The Nia Technique is a sensory based movement and lifestyle practice. Originally created as Non Impact Aerobics, NIA is a form of fusion fitness that combines movement from the martial arts, dance arts and healing arts. No experience is necessary except the willingness to be a beginner and move in a new way. Each participant chooses the intensity that is right for their body’s way in the moment. Traditionally Nia is practiced barefoot, but flexible shoes are recommended since we will be dancing in the street. More information can be found on trianglenia.com. No experience necessary except a willingness to be a beginner, move in new ways and have fun.

4pm-5pm: Hip Hop with Latissa Davis at Krav Maga Studios, 119 E Hargett St # 100

Come shake and groove with LaTissa ChaNellé! This class blends hip-hop and jazz to create a carefree dance style suited for all ages and levels. Students will learn choreography after a vigorous warm-up and stretching. Class is geared toward beginner and intermediate levels, but ALL dancers will feel comfortable in this dance-party style class. Ages 12 and up (including adults). LaTissa ChaNellé is a dancer, choreographer, and model based in Raleigh, NC. She currently teaches hip-hop at City Ballet in Raleigh and is a certified CIZE Live instructor.
