(New York) February 4, 2019 – This February, Ailey Extension welcomes students to the Joan Weill Center for Dance – New York’s largest building dedicated to dance and home of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater – to adopt heart healthy behaviors through new and exciting dance and fitness classes for everyone. During American Heart Month, join us on the dance floor to improve cardiovascular health and lower the risk for developing heart disease with Ailey Extension’s Class of the Week, a one-time-only discounted class that will be announced each Monday during the month of February. Students can keep their heart rate up with friends, loved ones, coworkers, and others in the Ailey community during a special Valentine’s Day Salsa class that will get everyone moving and grooving to the rhythms of passionate Latin music and dance. Ailey Extension’s “real classes for real people” are open to dancers of all levels and backgrounds – including absolute beginners.
Immerse yourself in the culture of hip-hop as you learn to pop, lock, break, with classic moves like Da Mona Lisa and new choreography from the nation's best hip-hop dance crews, past and present. Vivacious and energetic, classes are available for novices through experienced and provide a great mix of cardio and stretching.
