Each class session opens with dynamic stretching; exercises during the strength training component are done seated or standing, using hand weights and ankle weights. Work on hip mobility, core strength and balance is included as well.
At the end of each class, a generous amount of time is given for static stretching. And all of this happens in a friendly environment with lots of camaraderie and good humor! All materials provided.

WERQ is a fun, energetic and easy-to-learn cardio dance class set to pop and hip hop music. The workout is nonstop with repetitive athletic moves and easy-to-learn dance steps. Each week a few new routines will be added so that you continue to challenge yourself and build your rhythm!
Beginner: Learn circle, partner and line dances in a welcoming and social environment! We'll cover the basic steps and do a mix of dances every week -- the more you come, the more dances you'll know. Very beginner friendly; NO Israeli dance (or other dance) experience needed!
Intermediate/All Levels: Take on more challenging dances, and request to dance your favorites! This will be especially fun for people with some dance experience, but can truly be enjoyed by all levels. There is no pressure to dance throughout the evening - taking breaks to eat snacks (provided) and enjoy time with friends is encouraged. Includes circle, line and partner dances (though no partner is necessary!).
No kilt necessary! Learn and dance the traditional reels, jigs, and strathspeys of Scotland in a fun, social setting. All ages are welcome and no prior dance experience is needed. Basic instruction begins at 7, and as the evening progresses so does the difficulty, so plan to come early if you are a beginner. You don’t have to have a partner to dance! Wear socks or soft-soled shoes.
Learn and dance the traditional dances of 17th and 18th century England! These social dances are performed with partners and in groups. Some dances are serene, and others are quite lively! No partner is required as dance partners will change throughout the evening. Dances are taught during the first hour; requested dances are called or taught during the second hour.
