Experience the Joy of Motion at City Fitness this Fall

DC dance pioneer and founder of Joy of Motion Center Michelle Ava returns to Cleveland Park to offer two Saturday classes starting Saturday, September 15!

*Beginner Dance for EveryBODY*

with Michelle Ava

2:00 – 3:00 p.m.

There is a dancer living within each of us and EveryBODY has an innate ability to dance.  This class is for you if you always wanted to dance but didn’t know where to start or just never had the time.
A gentle stretch and body awareness warm up will be followed with a combination of technique and fun choreography. Experience the pure joy in motion, rhythm, coordination, strength, alignment, balance, posture, cool moves & all-around feeling great!  Feel more at home in your body & have fun while moving and grooving to music from the oldies up to contemporary tunes.
No prior experience needed; this is a great review for experienced dances too.



with Michelle Ava
3:15-4:30 p.m.
Creative expression is innate in each of us whether we are an artist or not.  We all possess a special and unique way of moving and expressing ourselves. Dance Stories is an opportunity to create a narrative through dance theatre modalities and improvisation from either your life journey or one that you make up as we go along.
This unique creative movement class calls upon our imagination, creative play, musical interpretation, and tapping into our creative self with improvisation rather than memorizing specific dance steps!
Performance opportunities at the end of the session available but not required.
