improve your body

dance&you by Brooklyn Dance Lessons
is a series of ongoing semi-private training sessions,
designed to help you improve your body awareness and structure.
We believe that dancing is not only a passion, but it is also a lifestyle.
Aligning your mind with your body, not only helps you to feel better
but will make you a better dancer.

mind & body

A SEMI-PRIVATE STRETCHING LESSON

Our bodies have an innate ability to relax. Our mind&body lessons are a merging of dynamic exercises and relaxation techniques that encourages you to let go, connect with feeling, and exceed the boundaries of your body — all while helping you to release muscle tension and enjoy the freedom of movement.

The lesson starts with a warm-up that integrates relaxation techniques, vigorous exercises, and breathwork to prepare the mind and the body for stretching. The stretching techniques include folds, backbends, hip openings, and twists. The goal is to help you create longer, leaner muscles and a body with more mobility. The lesson ends with a calming meditation.

You will walk away with a boost of energy, improved mood and a feeling of rejuvenation.

balance & posture

A SEMI-PRIVATE BARRE LESSON

balance&posture blends dance, yoga, and fitness exercises. The primary goal of this lesson is to tone your body, find stability and balance, and improve your posture. The experience strengthens your mind and body to work as if you were a professional dancer without having to do professional dance movements.

balance&posture starts with toning exercises using light weights, followed by different leg lift movements to work the whole body while stabilizing all your muscles. The lesson ends with various bodyweight exercises, abdominal work, and stretching on the yoga mat.

Our balance&posture lesson will increase your stamina and give you a total body workout while helping you become a better dancer.

speed & movement

A SEMI-PRIVATE DANCE WORKOUT LESSON

speed&movement is a super fun lesson for people that like to turn the music up and just dance like no one is watching. The lesson is a follow-the-leader style for all levels, and you move for the whole hour: it’s a unique chance to learn different dance moves while getting a great workout.

During speed&movement, people are able to expand their knowledge of dance and movement and feel more confident when they hit the dance floor. Most importantly, it is about having fun dancing!

This is not an instructional class, and there is no technique in steps so anyone can pick up the movement. The theme, dances, and music change weekly from Latin to favorite Pop that everyone knows and loves.
