30 Minute Stretching and Dance Technique
It's time to get moving again. This class combines stretching, balance, and basic dance techniques to get you moving better when you walk, improve your balance and posture, or become a better social dancer. Even if you never took a dance lesson, these basic movements are great exercises to help you tone and build endurance. No floor work; every movement will be done standing or sitting. A sturdy chair is required.
Instructor Natalie Mazzola is a former amateur 10 dance champion, and a teacher for over 20 years at the Vitti's School of Dance in Danbury, CT. She loves to have fun, and her no stress attitude toward dance is clear as her students always leave with a smile!

The choreographies are easy to follow and no dance experience is needed. The class concludes with a relaxing stretch -- no head-down position. Wear comfortable clothing and shoes with good support. You'll need a yoga mat, water bottle and towel handy and plan to sweat.
