Hello Neighbors! 

It was so awesome to see so many of you come out and take advantage of the adult classes offered at The Washington Ballet @THEARC! I hope you are feeling fit and fine! I just wanted to let you know that the TWB@THEARC summer adult classes will end tomorrow, August 5th but WILL RETURN ON SEPTEMBER 5TH! In case you are like me, and your "summer snapback" took a little longer than usual, you can still get your fitness on this fall and spring at THEARC. Classes are only $6/each for residents who live in an east of the river zip code, are parents of TWB@THEARC students or areTHEARC employees. $12/class for all others. 

I am including the fall schedule below. Enjoy!

Adult Classes September 5th 2017- May 25th 2018:

Vinyasa Yoga connects postures or asanas through breathing for a transformative and balancing effect. It builds heat, endurance, flexibility and strength.  

ADULT BALLET Tuesdays, Noon-1:15PM AND Wednesdays, 7:30PM-8:45PM
Our Adult Ballet class is designed to promote good technique, strength and flexibility. Beginning dancers are welcome in this comprehensive ballet class.  

ADULT BARRE Wednesdays, Noon-1PM
A low impact workout class that uses ballet, Pilates and yoga to give you sculpted, lean muscles as you gain core strength and flexibility. The instructor guides you through a warm up focusing on postural strength and alignment, followed by a series of upper body exercises using light weights, and the use of the ballet barre to sculpt the upper and lower body and abs, and gain flexibility.   

ADULT MODERN Thursdays, 10:15AM-11:30AM
This intermediate level contemporary, modern dance class focuses on the development of versatile technique: it builds the bodily skills of strength, flexibility and coordination while offering the dancer an opportunity to move with artistry and expressiveness.   

ADULT PILATES Thursdays, 7:15PM-8:15PM
Pilates improves core strength, flexibility and develops control and endurance in the entire body. It puts emphasis on alignment, breathing, a strong core and improving coordination and balance.   

ADULT ZUMBA Saturdays, 8:30AM-9:30AM
Ditch the workout, join the party! This class incorporates popular songs heard on the radio mixed with Latin rhythms and easy to follow moves making you feel like you are dancing in a music video.
