Special Guest Instructor

Nathalie Gomes Adams teaches a fun Charleston and Traditional Jazz routine from New Orleans!

Friday, April 3rd
8:30pm– 9:30pm EDT

Four time World Swing Dance Champion Nathalie Gomes Adams is known for her fearless gravity-defying aerials and award-winning choreographies. She has taught, performed and judged around the world, as well as opened schools in NYC and NoLa. When she's not flying high in the air, Nathalie stays grounded with her dance troupe Les Rebelles.

In this dance class, we'll start with a short warm up that includes vocabulary specific to the dance we are working on, and then we work on the choreography. So you actually learn a style of dance, technique and not just choreography.

Yoga for Dancers

with Irena Taneva @irenatanevayoga

Saturdays
12:30pm– 1:30pm EDT

Practice yoga with a focus on alleviating body strain from dancing!
Irena is fun and lighthearted, she brings a playful approach, as well as deep understanding of yoga anatomy and philosophy to her students. She strongly believes that yoga is a personal journey in which the more you are able to embrace rather than fight your own limitations and vulnerabilities, the less limits they hold and the more balance and energy you experience. Yoga has brought a profound purpose to her life which she shares with others.

Things to

  • Auto-Muted Audio

    Your audio will be automatically muted when you join the meeting, and your video on. Please keep these settings so that the main screen remains on the teachers. If you have a question, don't forget to unmute!

  • Auto-on Video

    Once you allow Zoom to access your camera, the meetings are set to automatically have your camera turned on. This is so we can see you, practice together, and break moves down a little more where we see there is a general difficulty or a question (just like REAL class!).

  • Have a Question?

    Use the "Raise Your Hand" feature, or write your question in the group chat!

  • Music during class

    Check the class section for a Spotify link to a special playlist for each day! This way if internet is lagging, you can always turn us down and play the music at home.

During these hard times, we must do what we can to protect the local dance community and postpone large gatherings until we can ensure your safety. The reality is COVID-19 could easily spread throughout our dance community. If we do what we can now (i.e. consistent hand washing, social distancing, limiting exposure to large crowds) community spread can be reduced dramatically.

Stay tuned on social and check your inboxes for future plans, as we will collaborate with the rest of the community and continue to create dance opportunities during this difficult time.

If anyone falls ill please call the COVID-19 Call Center available 24/7
+1 (866) 779-6121 or email COVID-19@flhealth.gov
