Course Descriptions

We have two new programs this session:

1) SHiNE™ is a dance fitness class rooted in traditional dance such as JAZZ, Hip HOP, and BALLET. We take those foundational moves and create dance routines that are easy enough for beginners yet challenging enough for the more seasoned dancer. The simplicity of the routines allows you keep moving all ages and abilities. The simplicity of the routines allows you keep moving and do less thinking. Because we like to keep you moving the average calories burned during a full class is approximately 750! Not bad for a workout that feels more like a dance party

2) Wing Tsun Kung Fu is an orthodox Shaolin Kung Fu and based on techniques originally developed at the famous Shaolin Temple. It is an unarmed self defense system.
