We asked Dennis Landmesser, how he liked his live streamed class today with instructor Dakota Crist.

The class today with Dakota was more than I could have hoped to expect.  I don't know what to rave about more, the quality of the production or the excellence to the class.  Dakota thought to ask at the start of class if there were any injuries which was especially  meaningful to me today because I have a sore knee.  Her instructions were clear and complete and made perfect sense.  The corrections were thoughtful and meaningful.  Dakota is golden and to be highly valued.

Since March, I've suffered through six months of ZOOM frustrations.  ADI has excelled in solving that misery.  I could have been watching a high definition BlueRay with Dolby sound.  

Thanks for asking,

Dennis Landmesser

Children's Modern Dance Classes

  • Children's Modern Dance Classes: Each dance class starts with a thorough warm-up to build strength and stimulate core connections and body awareness.
  • The warm up is followed by phrase work focusing on directional shiftf, weight changes, rhythm, and Laban Fundamentals (i.e. time, space, effort, etc.). Class finishes with some fun choreography to keep their minds and body in tip-top shape.
  • Your child will become more self-confident in their ability to create and more comfortable expressing ideas, a key leadership skill.
  • They'll experience an overall sense of fluidity, strength, and confidence in their everyday movement.
