This community (donation-based) class is appropriate for students who are active or athletic but would like a slower-paced class. It is ideal for those who are new to yoga, recovering from an injury, or interested in alignment. The sequences allow space for students to increase strength as well as work with the breath to develop flexibility and relaxation. This class allows for everyone in the community to participate while encouraging an individualized practice.

Neighborhood Ballet

1 HOUR &
15 minutes

NOT for prima ballerinas, this community (donation-based) class is open to all levels and offers a traditionally structured but gentle ballet practice in a fun and nonjudgmental atmosphere. Perfect for adults who have studied some ballet in the past, Neighborhood Ballet provides a space where students can move and progress at their own pace and focus on individual areas of interest, such as flexibility, fitness, alignment, balance, strength, and artistry. 80s-style leos and legwarmers recommended but not required! 

Currently not in session.


At this level, students are expected to be more serious in their study of ballet. The essential overall structure and vocabulary learned in previous levels remain consistent as the student progresses through more advanced steps. Classes will cultivate artistic expression and musicality while refining technique. A more robust practice of jumps and leaps as well as pre-pointe work will further strengthen muscles and bone tissue. This class is also available as a drop-in for intermediate-level adults.

Modern Technique*

Ages 12 & Up
1 hour


This eight-week somatic experience involves deep, contemplative work. It is embodied practice that invites the Mover to listen to the body and to move organically and intuitively. There is no script, no music or prescribed movement, and the Mover moves with closed eyes. The role of the Witness is to simply watch the mover and to contain the movement space. The dialogue between the Mover and the Witness will be explored in this eight-week session. It is within the dialogue that healing can occur, that transpersonal moments are inspired, and that creativity can flow!
