Born 2 Dance Adult Classes

View the Adult Class Schedule

 

 

Born 2 Dance Studio offers the biggest and most diverse adult dance program in Northern Virginia with more than 80 weekly adult classes in 14 dance styles

 

Our adult dance classes fall into one of the following categories: Technique & Choreography, Dance Fitness or Performance classes, as described below:

 


 

1) Technique & Choreography Classes

 

For those looking to learn a certain dance, such as Belly Dance or Salsa, this is the right class category for you.

 

Technique & Choreography classes focus on teaching the underlying foundation of a dance style. They break down the movements and utilize drills to instill these movements in your muscle memory.

 

Some, but not all, Technique & Choreography classes combine these movements to create choreography pieces. Dance styles such as Hip Hop and Bollywood are very choreography-focused by nature, and thus, you're constantly applying the technique you learn into various choreographed routines.

 

Technique & Choreography classes usually have the word "Technique" in the name. See class schedule below.

 


 

2) Dance Fitness Classes

 

Many students are not just interested in learning how to dance. Dancing as a form of exercise is an increasingly popular choice among many fitness-seekers, who find gym routines and cardio machines to be too monotonous, and oftentimes, ineffective.

 

While all dance classes naturally provide some exercise, we specifically offer pure Dance Fitness classes, whose sole focus is to work you out. From losing weight and building stamina to enhancing flexibility and boosting cardio strength, dance fitness classes offer a wide array of health benefits... and you still get to learn to dance!

 

Example of our Dance Fitness classes include POUND, Ballet Barre, Hip Hop Cardio, Zumba, Belly Dance Fitness and Bollywood Fitness.

 

For those seeking variety, we also offer a Dance Fitness Program, which allows you to attend any mix of these fitness classes at discounted rates.

 

Dance fitness classes are always marked with the + sign. See Dance Fitness class schedule below.

3) Performance Classes

 

Performance classes allow enrolled students to perform on stage at our semi-annual shows.

 

The shows, also known as Recitals, are big productions held at a professional venue, typically with over 250 performers, more than 30 choreography pieces and a crowd exceeding 1,000 people in attendance.  The performers are mostly students, along with our instructors and our in-house resident dance companies.

You don't have to be an experienced dancer to participate in our shows; in fact, many of the students who do are beginners!

 

To determine whether a class is performance-based, look for the **^symbol next to the name. See class schedule below

Class Types

Group classes offered at Born 2 Dance Studio are either Enrollment-Session or Open-Session classes, as described below:

 

1) Enrollment-Session Classes

Enrollment-Session Classes are simply Group Classes that require "enrollment" in the entire session, as opposed to just showing up to class periodically.

 

The reason being is that Enrollment-Session classes are cumulative in nature. They focus heavily on "technique" and on building the core foundation for the dance style, and therefore, what you learn in one week's class becomes imperative for the next.

 

By policy, students have up until the fourth week of class to enroll in the session. After that, registration is closed to new students, unless instructor's permission is granted.

 

We strive to ensure that our students enjoy their classes without the added inconvenience of new students joining in late in the session, so please do your best to register early and within the noted deadline.

 

Enrollment-Session Classes are noted as such on the Class Schedule, They include Belly Dance (Technique,) Belly Dance (Performance,) Salsa, Bollywood, Persian Dance and Flamenco.

 

2) Open-Session Classes

Open-session classes are non-cumulative and do not require enrollment. While students can enroll in an entire Open-Session, they are also allowed to just "Drop In" and attend one class at a time only paying for that single class ($20 per drop-in for 1-hour classes or $15 for 45-minute classes.)

 

Open-Session classes focus on teaching a new routine or set of movements in every class, so that students can attend one class at a time and still benefit from each class individually.

 

Of course enrolling in an Open-Session class is cheaper than just attending one drop-in at at time (averages out to $15 per class vs. $20 for Drop-Ins.) Also please note that most of our classes tend to fill up

 

Open-Session Classes are noted as such on the Class Schedule. They include Exotic Dance, Break Dance, Hip Hop, Zumba and Pilates, as well as all workout classes (i.e. Belly Dance Workout, Salsa Aerobics, Bollywood Workout, etc.)

 

 

 

Class Levels
Technique classes come in various levels, ranging from Beginner all the way to Advanced.
