"The arts are a challenging and under-appreciated field. However, I believe very deeply in the importance of creative work for individuals/communities and for social change. We need more art in the world - not merely for entertainment, but for the well-being of our communities, to reconnect to the self, and to foster a more universal and inclusive language. Being an artist is a constant risk, but one that is well worth the moments of inspiration that allow us to create, perform, share, teach and inspire."

Solo Dance Classes ~ on Hold January through June 2021
Not a poler? No problem! Virtual and live, in-studio classes are available in multiple styles by various instructors.
A passionate fusion of dance, visualization, sensual movement, meditation, and celebration of the feminine form inspired by African, Tribal, and Free Dance interwoven with the sensual and the healing arts. Women experience new levels of freedom, deepen connection to self as they explore their inner rhythm, and awaken their senses through sound.
Dance with energetic shimmies and slinky snake arms. This class focuses on the basic moves of Middle Eastern bellydance, with additional options and layers for experienced bellyancers. Topics include shimmies, undulations, hip bumps, snake arms, twists, circles, and figure eights.
It is not necessary to bare your midriff to learn bellydance. Bring indoor dance shoes/ballet slippers if you are more comfortable in shoes (or you can dance barefoot). And more experienced dancers should bring their finger cymbals/zills.
Becoming the ultimate showgirl starts here! Students of all ages, sizes, and genders welcome. Each class, students will learn a variety of dance steps, showgirl poses, dance combinations, and basic tricks to become the biggest tease. Students will be introduced to all types of burlesque movement, from slow and sensual to something more upbeat for sweaty/sexy hair tossing. Bring a pair of heels and get ready to shimmy, shake, and captivate with your new burlesque persona.
Chair dancing allows all skill levels to exercise while unleashing their sassy side to a variety of music. Students will explore the art of letting go while learning choreography that incorporates a chair in fantastic ways.
So whether you are looking for some new moves to spice up your dance routines, ready to be the center of attention on the dance floor, or just need a new and exciting fitness routine (and a fun way to get in shape).... chair dance at Floorplay Studio is guaranteed to bring out your inner diva.
Hip hop class will be one hour of high-energy fun and full of sweat. Infusing the latest music and styles, you will pop, twerk, drop, and freestyle. Class will start with a fun warmup, leading to learning choreography to a song chosen by the instructor, and ending with showing the class your version of the choreo. Through class you will grow endurance, strength, and mindset to perform moves. You will be able to do things you never thought you could do, and you will love how you feel after every class. Each student is also a teacher; teaching the rest of the class how you would entertain if you were on stage.
It's time to learn lots of new ways to bounce that booty while burning tons of calories. Slim you waist, tone your legs, and have fun! Never say you can't twerk until you've tried this class.
Learn all about twerk technique and get wobbling and dropping happening in at least four different positions. Specific conditioning is designed to level up your peachy skills and improve isolation and control.
