Shar’s Nia Dance Fitness Classes- Spring Session

Hello all,
I would like to introduce myself as a Nia White Belt Dance Fitness Instructor. My dance journey that began with belly dancing has lead me to my second love of “Nia dance” and I hope to share in the joy of this dance with you through my upcoming Nia classes.

Below is a brief description of what Nia is about and details re: the classes:
Nia is a dance fitness program that uses movements from the dance arts, healing arts and martial arts. It is a gentle workout designed to allow the body to move in its natural way while maximizing strength and cardiovascular fitness. It is done barefoot to soul stirring world music and inspires the mind, body, soul connection. Nia is ultimately a movement practice rooted in the joy and pleasure of movement as a means to heal the body and soul.

Classes are an hour choreographed routine with some free dance sections that allow each person to explore and find “the dance” that is their own body’s way of moving. It is for all ages, body types and fitness levels.

So, if you love to move to music and want to have the wonderful “side effect” of getting a great workout in the process, please join me at:

  1. Pingback: W00T- we did it again! « Halyma

  2. Congrats to all involved. As a performer I liked the lights panning the audience , made it less of a BLACK VOID. As an audience member I thought the decor was nice, the sound was good , the intros to the point with little down time between numbers. As always a wonderful opportunity for anyone interested in Belly Dance, and it’s many offshoot fusion styles, to strut their stuff. The atmosphere was relaxed and everyone seemed to be having a good time.
