Jazz for Grown-Ups
There may or may not be jazz hands, but there will definitely be plenty of hip-swiveling sass in this jazz class! It can be hard to find a dance class that fulfills the joy of moving in a relaxed environment, so look no further if you would like to learn a little fun choreography alongside technique and conditioning. In this class, there will be a warm-up to get the body ready, a bit of low-impact conditioning, and then finally some satisfying choreography that lets dancers find their own style! This class will help with balance, musicality, and strength as well as bring a bit of that razzle-dazzle to the everyday.
Whether you're looking for a new fitness outlet or have always wanted to try a historical martial art, then this class will be the perfect fit. The techniques in this class are sourced from a historical text written in the 1500s as we work to recreate a fighting style centuries-old. In this class run by the Grand Traverse Historical Weapons Guild, there will be a brief warm-up then move into drills for both solo work and partners. There is a strong focus on safety and control so that you can have fun while learning to "safely hit your friends". No partner is necessary and all equipment will be provided.
