The Barn is a beautiful, inspiring space, and we are grateful to be able to hold these offerings throughout the summer.

These will be yummy days dancing and moving together!

Greenwich YMCA members can come to Thursday classes for free w/ their membership (or can pay $10/session to participate in Performance Project season). Non Y members, see MiXt Co. Fees below. Thursdays are a Gentle/MiXt Level - All movers welcome.

Wednesdays, Click here for “MiXT Co. NYC

We will plan to run our our six-week class + performance project in April 2020, and possibly have a few open classes, monthly, Jan-March (open classes at 7:00 PM are an option during the April/May season, or stay until 9:00 PM for rehearsals leading up to two performances - in CT and NYC. Rigorous/MiXt Level for experienced dancers.

MiXt Co. is our signature class series and performance project. Drop in classes are offered year round: currently most Mondays at 7:00 PM fall, winter and spring, Thursdays year round and Wed. in NYC Winter and Spring. In the summer we offer day-long dance retreats. During our performance project seasons (fall and spring), a weekly class and rehearsal process ending in an informal performance for full project participants is an option many dancers in our community eagerly take advantage of. Dancers in groupings by Rigorous level, MiXt level and/or Gentle level, each work with choreographers once per week during the season. Experienced Dancers typically participate in either Rigorous or MiXt Level groupings, and all movers are welcome in the gentle level group despite previous experience

Choreographers create a short work for those able to commit to the season for each group (6-7 sessions). Drop-in classes continue to be an option at 7:00 PM throughout the season, for those who can't commit to the full performance project (rehearsals for performers continue after class until 9:00 or 9:15 PM). The program strives to be a catalyst between NYC and CT choreographers, dancers, dance enthusiasts and audiences. Choreographers gain access to new communities of movers. Participants have access to quality contemporary, modern and/or classical practice and process, while our local audience will enjoy the variety created and presented.

Performance Project participants must be 18 or older, though mature younger dancers are welcome to drop in for classes, or those 10-14 can join us for our Master Class Series for Dancers 10-14 years of age.

The Body Sessions are master-class offerings, each taught by different practitioners who allow us to dive into deep explorations of functionality, body-mind connection or distinct physical practices, which continue to feed and educate our community of dancers and movers and compliment our class offerings. We offer these Body Sessions for all movers
