Academy of Performing Arts’ troupe of instructors, cherry-picked from preeminent professional circles, purveys terpsichorean teachings and fitness work for all levels of movers and shakers. Reconnect with estranged limbs in a 90-minute session of introductory modern dance, or mix gyrating hips into a sensuous, 60-minute salsa class. The academy also features lithe lectures in the traditional moves of Irish and flamenco dancing. Depending on age, children can toddle, teeter, or totter through three levels of ballet classes or expel restlessness and clingy shoulder parrots with a serving of hip-hop.
Students can incorporate deftly choreographed steps into fitness with Zumba classes—aerobic workouts galvanized by Latin rhythms—or capoeira, a Brazilian hybrid of dance and martial arts designed to stun opponents with painfully awkward invitations to slow-dance. For a soul-centered experience, physiques can flow through expertly guided sessions in Pilates and yoga. The academy offers a flexible schedule, conducting courses during mornings, evenings, and weekends.
