Event Type
Event Description

In BeMoved®, teachers are passionate about sharing the joy of dance with people of all movement abilities. We believe that movement expressed through dance and music has a transformative power that enriches a person's wellbeing above and beyond the well-known physical fitness benefits. The Warm-Up infuses breath and movement through choreographed, artistic sequences that activate core strength and balance while improving flexibility and coordination. The Genre section of class uses continuous, engaging dance combinations to inspire anyone from first-time dancers to professionals. Finally, the Cool Down brings your workout full circle, leaving you balanced in mind, body and soul - feeling rejuvenated. For more information, check out
