Hip Moves' instructors lead cadres of muscle masons through energizing dance and fitness classes designed to build the core and stretch physiques. Navel neophytes can carve a sleeker shadow with a Belly-Dance Technique and Abs class, in which students learn basic shimmies and eject loose lint from tummy trenches, finishing the class with a bout of abdominal strengthening ($10/class). Squeeze in an hour's worth of warrior posing and Darth Vader-breathing during the Lunchtime Yoga class, or marry flexibility, core strength, posture, and brief meditation in a plural union during a yoga/Pilates mix class ($10/class). Hoop Dance & Fitness channels Pluto's orbit and Dante's circular afterlife for a sinew-building workout that incorporates exercise, technicality, and personal expression ($12/class). Consult the schedule for precise dates and times.
