Aurora Dance in Amherst hosts 60- and 90- minute fitness classes that meld the calisthenics of dance with core-toning principles of Pilates and yoga for students seeking a rhythmic diversion from traditional workouts. Groups of up to 20 animate hips during Dance ‘n’ Stretch sessions as the beats of world music ripple their sound waves through the studio space. Instructors teach a series of easy-to-follow dance moves that participants perform barefoot or in soft-soled shoes. The dancing didacts then lead pupils as they sprawl out—like cats trying to play with four sets of car keys at once—during a stint of stretching and core-hardening mat routines. For a softer approach to corporeal wellness, students can gently extend their limbs to the tune of tranquil melodies during Soothing Stretch workshops. Elements of dance flit among yoga postures and Pilates techniques to limber rickety joints and vanquish stress.
