$20 for Five Drop-In Dance Classes ($61 Value)
Boasting a warehouse-like environment that features dancers frolicking amid exposed-brick walls and hardwood floors, Vega Dance Lab provides a setting perfect for picking up new moves or reenacting the lost musical sequence from Reservoir Dogs. Classes are open to dancers of all experience levels but are designed for adult dancers. In addition to more technique-based classes, including Modern/Contemporary and Hip-Hop Cabaret, the studio helps bolster heart rates and shed calories in fitness classes such as Tease & Tone or Cardio Funk. See Vega Dance Lab's schedule for upcoming classes.
Vega Dance Lab
After several years of suffering through classes filled with tweens, or missing sessions because of rigid scheduling, Evie Graham started her own dance studio. At Vega Dance Lab, everyone from people who have never strapped on groove shoes to seasoned students aged 16 and older can school their left feet or untalented dancing bears in nine dances on a drop-in basis. Shuffle-savvy instructors school pupils in proper ballet technique, burlesque-inspired choreography, and hip-hop cabaret, where dancers perform hip-hop moves with a cabaret-inspired flair.
Teachers also integrate dance into intensive workouts such as Cardio Funk, an exercise regimen set to hip-hop music, or Tease & Tone, a session divided between 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of dance. Lessons kick off six days a week in Vega Dance Lab’s spacious, graffiti-decorated warehouse where students can test their latest moves by dancing out of the way of oncoming forklifts.
