The sway specialists at ASFA Dance usher aspiring light trippers through technique-driven dance lessons and energetic, fitness-oriented sweat sessions. Pliéing preceptors teach students the fundamentals of controlled capering in the adult ballet class that, unlike a shrunken-head production of Swan Lake, takes a whole-body approach to the technique of classical ballet. Dance a course for ventricular invigoration with the Zumba class, a blast of Latin–inspired cardio dancercise set to a fast-paced tempo, or firm, tone, and reconnect with physiques in the dance-conditioning course. Other classes include waistline-whittling belly dancing, hand-waggling jazz, and foot-preserving self-defense dance courses. Check out the schedule for specific times and dates.
