News From The Ground


jeyballetclass

Jey Dance Pilates a floating studio previously reported on in this very column, offers a 'Barre' class, which is an hour and a half workshop. I'm used to the 'Pure Barre' variety so was expecting more work out then technique, but it was definitely more dance class which ended up being fun (even for a beginner) and was still Pure Barre sore the next day. The workshop goes through floor barre technique, classic barre, center adagio, pirouettes, and choreography. The class was mixed with beginners and people who definitely had some dance experience. Location varies and Jey plans on keeping the workshop semi-regular; class costs 180rmb. For more info WeChat: JeydancePilates.

More Dance Unrelated to Dustbreakerz or Jey, the semi-regular free swing lessons are on again this Saturday.

Also incase you missed it last week, there's this new amazing gym called Jumplify with a work out that involves flying...kind of. Read more here.
