Living Arts Dance Studios offers dance lessons for children and adults, along with self-defense, karate, and kick-boxing lessons. The philosophy of Living Arts Dance Studio is that dance can benefit children by introducing them to performing arts at an early age. Their mission is to help young children find positive outlets for their energy so they will do well later on in life. Studies have proven that kids who get involved in music, art and dance at young ages do well in their other scholastic studies. Living Arts Dance & Fitness Studios also takes adults who are ready to learn some new moves. They stress that dance is an excellent way to have fun and stay fit. Adult classes include praise dance, Zumba, African dance, belly dancing, boot camp and many more.
Drawing from diverse backgrounds in choreography, sports, and dance, the instructors at MasterJay Moves Dance Studios and Philly Premier Pole Dance lead a schedule of coed classes for dancers of all skill levels. The team helps participants to exude allure while practicing Spider-Man impressions on 20 shining poles or hip shaking along to Latin rhythms. Whereas classes impart new skills, private parties allow students and their friends to practice striptease and sensual pole movements in a low-pressure environment so they can celebrate engagements or figure out how to entrance local volunteer firefighters.
