To stick with the theme of phys ed, I attempted — but failed– to figure out a way to play intramural touch football at home (maybe you could pull it off if you have a lot of roommates). So, alternately, I recalled the weirdness that was the “dance” day of gym class curriculum. Do you remember line dancing and contra dance and wishing more than anything you did not have to touch your classmates? Yeah, I’m still not into touching right now, so here’s some ways to take a dance class in your living room.
Pittsburgh dance classes you can take online
Art in Motion is located in Sharpsburg, but thanks to the magic of technology, you can take a bunch of virtual classes without leaving your house. This means there’s little risk of being embarrassed for messing up steps or tripping over your own feet. Their fall adult classes include tap, samba and bellydance classes.
Bring the Pittsburgh Ballet Theater into your living room
Wanna relive your early years donning tights and a tutu for dance class? Pittsburgh Ballet Theater offers their virtual classes through Mind Body Online. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know your plié from your pirouette, PBT offers options for beginners in ballet and fitness classes. If you need a little inspiration first, check out their June performance of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at Hartwood Acres.
Dance classes on-demand
Want some on-demand classes you can squeeze into your schedule around mandated Zoom happy hours with your colleagues, virtual birthday parties, and trips to the park? Check out Los Sabrosos. The Garfield dance studio has a series of their classes ready to watch at any time. Just pay and receive a password for viewing. You can also access live streamed classes via Zoom.
