The Dance Place nurtures nascent toe-tappers through a packed schedule of fun, energetic group classes held in a cheery, purple studio. Under the tutelage of seasoned instructors, daily classes cover a range of rug-cutting methods including waltz, cha-cha, foxtrot, salsa, and other varieties. Amateur dancers can flaunt their newly perfected twists as they solidify technique, socialize with other hip-shakers, and soak up a host of health and wellness benefits. Each class matches students of similar experience levels to avoid unnecessary stumbles as they try to keep up, or the humiliation of accidentally getting served by their partners.
All eight of the instructors at Turiya Yoga have an RYT 200 certification from Yoga Alliance, which means they have completed 200 hours of accredited yoga training. They put their experience to good use in an array of yoga classes, which center around the classic styles of Ashtanga, Hatha, Yin, and Vinyasa yoga. Most classes are open to all skill and fitness levels, except for the more challenging Ashtanga-yoga sessions, which require students to transition between more than 70 postures while peeling an avocado. Owner and instructor Melissa Prouty is also a certified birth doula and offers doula services and birthing workshops.
