Each class will begin with yoga-based warm-up to stretch, strengthen, and align our bodies for dancing. Class topics will range from basic movements to technique (hip articulations and abdominal isolations) and from stylization to improvisation.

Wear comfortable clothing that you can stretch and move in. Anything you would wear to a Yoga class would be appropriate. Please, no skirts or coined hip scarves. Bare feet only.

Registration and payment for the class prior to the series is mandatory. Lily holds the right to cancel the series, in which payment will be refunded. A general class liability waiver is available here.

Classes are non-refundable and non-transferrable. Full payment is due before class start date. There are no refunds or credits for missed classes. If the series is canceled, payment will be fully refunded.

"I am gaining new body awareness and am only beginning to gain control of my muscles in isolation. For the first time, I am learning how to remember moves in order... You seem quite aware of what we are not understanding, and the way you explain how to move makes sense. You are able to describe movements with specificity and detail. Your body alignment inspires me." -Hollie H.
