The Dance Hub has switched software
We have switched from MindBody to Wellness Living. You will be experiencing an easier to use interface as well as a dedicated phone app (ready in the next two weeks). Please bear with us while we finalize the switch. For signups or questions, please contact Eric Valinsky at firstname.lastname@example.org.

New Class HYBRID Beginning Ballet II with Carrie Diamond
Mondays 6:00-7:30 p.m.
Beginning Ballet II is for students that have had a minimum of two solid years of ballet training, or jazz, modern dance, or contemporary training, even if it was a long time ago! More experienced dancers coming back to ballet will also benefit from this class. Due to the long, forced break we’ve all endured, we will start back slowly. Technical fundamentals at the barre and in center exercises will be developed and refined. New vocabulary, the directions of the body, adagio, port de bras, preparation for pirouettes, and traveling combinations will be introduced. If you would like to get back into ballet, get your body moving again and build your technique back, you are encouraged to join this group.
Hybrid Classes at the Dance Hub
Now that Santa Barbara County has reopened, The Dance Hub is offering HYBRID classes. Students can attend these classes IN THE STUDIO as well as virtually on Zoom. Classes marked VIRTUAL will continue to be offered Virtual only. Students attending class in the studio must abide by studio rules, including distancing, sanitizing, and wearing masks if not fully vaccinated. Until further notice, there will be no desk service. Students who wish to attend in studio must notify the instructor in advance and sign up and pay online. This information will be updated periodically.
