Mazi Dance Fitness Centre
Experienced dance instructors with national and international credits showcase graceful moves beneath the soaring alabaster-hued ceilings of MaZi Dance Fitness Centre. High-intensity cardio classes with clever names including Ballerina Fight Club combine ballet movements with boxing jabs to strengthen muscles by avoiding the repetitive motions of free weights and rides on the handlebars of stationary bikes. Soft candlelight flickers across the studio, and patrons of all levels release tension before the shimmering cubist sweep of the Chicago skyline. Introductory ballet classes and sessions for kids 4 and older pass on basic techniques, and students in private sessions hone pointe work and chat with distinguished visiting tutus.
