GROOV3 is a one hour, high-energy, dance-til-you-drop cardio hip hop/funk class with a mission to inspire change and build communities through the power of dance. Simple combinations accommodate all fitness levels, featuring the hottest DJ mixes. You’ll spend the hour learning a fun mini routine while sweating and getting your GROOV3 on! 

Join us for the wildly addictive cardio class, WERQ! WERQ is the fiercely fun dance fitness workout based on pop and hip hop music.

Awaken the Dance

Are you longing for a dance space where you feel totally at ease? Here you are welcomed, just as you are. We go deep and laugh hard. Come as you are, connect to yourself and others through body awareness and dance.
At Awaken the Dance, led by Hannah Kinderlehrer you will be embraced in our community, enjoying amazing music from around the world, and surrendering to your body’s wisdom as it guides your dance. Grounding in feeling your self from the inside out, with gentle guidance and warm community, we transition naturally into the pure messy, wild pleasure of having a body.

Beginners Contemporary

The Beginning class is tailored to the beginning dancer, dancers who are seeking an easy, still athletic, fun class and those wishing to ease back into class after some time away! In class, we’ll combine breath, stretching, centering all while working on beginning technique, improvisation, and fun phrase work.

Fascial Flow

Fascial Flow is an integration of specific movements and static postural holds that bring you back into your body and create a deep level of awareness of any imbalances you might have. Every class is different and catered to what your body needs that day. You will be taken through a specific warm up to get the spine and all the joints mobile and your body nice and sweaty, that will follow with a variety of fascial stretches and then we get into our postures to create space in the spine, ending with some deep breathing techniques to strengthen our diaphragm and calm the body. The goal is for you to experience a reduction in any body pains you may have and an increase in overall wellbeing! Be prepared to sweat, awaken your mind and have some fun!

Dancing With the Brain

Would you like to have less pain? Would you like to move and feel better? Then you’ll want to join Nancy Linsley at this relaxing but rejuvinating class with delicious slow gentle movement with focused attention. In less than an hour you will go on a journey of self-discovery to find out what’s keeping you from having a pain-free body. You’ll learn ways to integrate your mind and body- to move your body in a way that improves your brain.

Nia

Nia is mind/body physical conditioning program that originally stood for Non-Impact Aerobics. A health and fitness alternative that emerged in the ’80’s, NIA evolved to include neurological integrative practices and teachings. Alchemy teachers have created their own artistic interpretations of Nia. These classes are perfect if you love music and dance but want something a bit lower impact on your body. We have two fabulous NIA teachers at Alchemy, Jackie Diner and Marty Diner each with their own mood and style. Come dance with us!

We offer two Beginners classes and one Intermediate/Advanced each week so you can practice your skills and get stronger by the day! This class is for you if you are new to aerial art and want to try a new form of expression and dance while still getting a small workout in. Beginners Aerial hoop is for EVERYONE, all ages, body types, and genders! See you there!
