Choreography will become more complex as we begin to layer multiple moves into the dance or incorporate props such as veils, fan veils, canes, or finger cymbals. Props will be available to borrow in class.  For those who want their own, a limited number of props & hip scarves are available for purchase from the instructor. 

    Come in yoga pants, leggings or other attire that allows full range of motion. No baggy shirts, baggy pants or long skirts as it’s important for you and the instructor to see your body positions. Also, a scarf or shawl to tie around your hips is helpful to see your hip movements in the mirror.

    "Cardio drumming is so much fun you don't even know you're exercising!" –Nancy R.

    "This is the first exercise class I have stuck with because it is so much fun! Beth is a great positive instructor. You can workout at your own level." – Carolyn E.

    No drumming experience needed. All levels welcome…can even be done sitting down! 

    Cardio Drumming combines movement with the beat and rhythm of drums for a fun, high energy workout. It brings together drumsticks, an exercise ball, an exercise ball stand and rhythmic moves to create one of the most fun workouts you’ll ever do — you won’t want to stop.

    Cardio drumming will raise your heart rate to help burn those calories, improve your coordination and ability to focus, and help strengthen many muscle groups, including your core. Studies have shown that when people find workouts they enjoy and have fun with, they’re more likely to stick with their routine.

    Equipment needed: 65 cm exercise ball, a 5 gallon bucket to set ball on and 5A basic drum sticks. Purchase a set from Womanspace for $20 (limited supply)

    Please register at least two days prior to the session you would like to attend.

    Join Kate Blair for one or both of these workshops for a creative exploration of some building blocks to human movement. Inspired by Jane Hawley’s Movement Fundamentals curriculum. Bring a journal or sketchbook and writing utensil as there will be some reflective pauses to write and or sketch. Please Dress comfortably for moving.

    Remembering Building Blocks to Movement for Life, Dance, and Creative Expression


    Inspired by Peggy Hackney’s book, Making Connections, Kate will guide participants in explorations of patterns of total body connectivity such as ‘breath’, ‘body-half,’ ‘core-distal,’ and more. Remembering and relearning these patterns we each connected to (on some level) in early childhood can help support any kind of movement endeavor as we grow through life! Relating to these patterns may surprise you in the process of movement improvisation and creation.

    Register deadline is 2 days before class.

    Hatha yoga is a slow-paced gentle asana practice focusing on introducing basic yoga poses and establishing a strong foundation in the practice of yoga. Hatha yoga balances the "Ha" — sun/stimulating energy with the "Tha" — moon/calming energy.

    Restorative yoga helps promote deep relaxation of the body and the mind. Postures provide similar benefits to classic Hatha yoga postures and are usually done in a supported manner to minimize strain and maximize opening.  Suggested equipment: comfortable attire, yoga mat, yoga block, strap, blanket/pillow.

    Register two day before each class.

    "Cardio drumming is so much fun you don't even know you're exercising!" –Nancy R.

    "This is the first exercise class I have stuck with because it is so much fun! Beth is a great positive instructor. You can workout at your own level." – Carolyn E.

    No drumming experience needed. All levels welcome…can even be done sitting down! 

    Cardio Drumming combines movement with the beat and rhythm of drums for a fun, high energy workout. It brings together drumsticks, an exercise ball, an exercise ball stand and rhythmic moves to create one of the most fun workouts you’ll ever do — you won’t want to stop.

    Cardio drumming will raise your heart rate to help burn those calories, improve your coordination and ability to focus, and help strengthen many muscle groups, including your core. Studies have shown that when people find workouts they enjoy and have fun with, they’re more likely to stick with their routine.

    Equipment needed: 65 cm exercise ball, a 5 gallon bucket to set ball on and 5A basic drum sticks. Purchase a set from Womanspace for $20 (limited supply)

    Please register at least two days prior to the session you would like to attend.
