Welcome to BODS (BalléNess Online Dance Studio), where ballet meets fitness in an online dance studio. We allow you to dance and work out from the convenience of your own home. BalléNess is a dance studio that offers online dance and fitness classes for all ages. We have gone global! With students in 12 different countries we continue to teach, communicate, and move together via the internet. Our classes are not pre-recorded videos; they are live and in real-time with an instructor! BalléNess gives access to dance and fitness in the most convenient way; you can virtually take class anywhere!
As a BalléNess student you will have a heightened sense of kinesthetic and body awareness and an increased knowledge of your visual, audio and sensory memory. Whether you take a personalized one-on-one class or you take a class with a group of friends or colleagues, there is a sense of anonymity by taking class with BalléNess that offers most students additional confidence. We understand that sometimes it is difficult to have the confidence to go to a new school or try a new class. BalléNess classes allow for a one-on-one, teacher-to-student ratio, in a manner which favors the individual and promotes self esteem and positive body image.
BalléNess promotes a motivational teaching philosophy that encourages each student to reach personal goals and gain a sense of pride in their accomplishments. Studying dance and fitness offers great physical benefits like muscle toning, flexibility, strength, and posture. In addition to recreational and pre-professional dance and fitness classes, BalléNess offers choreography critiques that help ‘clean’ up pieces and help dancers prepare for performances with voice, visual and written corrections. These types of corrections allow the dancer to self-correct and re-enforce one’s body awareness through muscle memory and mirroring.
