The refined human form in the motion of ballet is inspiring to aspiring dancers, captivating to anatomy students, and vexing to small mammals that prefer twitchy, disjointed movement. Send nearby pygmy marmosets into a jealous tizzy with today's deal: for $15, you get a five dance-class punch card ($55) and a waived first-year registration fee ($25) at Ballet Virginia International (an $80 total value), with locations in Norfolk and Virginia Beach. Though the studio offers many classes now, its schedule will expand for the fall term starting September 7, potentially including additional drop-in classes at different days and times.
Ballet Virginia International provides aspiring toe-stretchers with professional instruction in several dances, satisfying those looking for a casual workout or a new artistic medium. This deal gives you five sessions of any of the following drop-in classes:
Adult Ballet, good for both rookie ballerinas and deft dancers more than 18 years of age. This class focuses on classic techniques while shaping straight posture and graceful balance.
Adult Dance Fitness, in which dancers 18 years or older use free weights, ropes made from Richard Simmons's hair, and the Swiss exercise ball for a full-body workout. Take this class to tone muscles, strengthen cores, and remedy any back issues.
Zumba Fitness, which requires dancers to be 16 or older, is taught by former Alvin Ailey dancer Lydia Coco. This Latin-based, cardiovascular workout merges moves from salsa, merengue, hip-hop, and the Colombian cumbia dances to form a calorie-obliterating workout.
Ballet Virginia International's veteran instructors boast a combined 100+ years of professional dance experience and will foster a positive, comfortable environment. Those who dream of nimbly performing sit-ups in a Tchaikovsky ballet can train within the same organization that majestically stages The Nutcracker each December and March. Check the summer schedule and give Ballet Virginia International a call to save your spot.
