BAHIA IN MOTION ONLINE/LIVE CLASSES ARE A GO!
We have really been enjoying dancing and training with you all virtually! Seeing all of your faces and beautiful selves has been the highlight of each day. Your energy transmits right back to us through our screen! It has been especially wonderful to meet students across the country, in Europe, Asia, Central and South America joining us for the first time. Special thanks to Jesse, West, Steve and Naomi who are working virtually to make sure registration, sound and video are going smoothly and our classes are up-to-date on our website. A heartfelt thanks to all of you who are spreading the word about our classes...we want to reach as many people as possible across all continents to keep us connected, grounded, and in touch with our inner joy.
Here's how it works:
- Who can take these classes?: These classes are open to everyone in the U.S. and around the world. Please continue to spread the word!
- Registration: Register via our online class page on our website. Each class has its own Eventbrite link. Click on the link and register. You'll then be sent a receipt from Eventbrite with the Zoom link information.
- Payment: We know this is a rough time for everyone. You’ll have an option to pay for class via a sliding scale from $7-$18 (about $7.50-$18.50 total with fees). Dance classes (Zumba and Brazilian Dance) are FREE for age 12 and under. Parents are welcome to join youth Capoeira classes for FREE. Class cards are on hold right now but don’t worry! We will honor them once the studio opens again and we will extend expiration dates.
- Please note: When taking our virtual online classes you agree to take the class in a clutter-free, safe space. Thank you!
- Schedule: PLEASE CHECK THIS SCHEDULE EVERY WEEK, AS THE SCHEDULE AND LINKS WILL CHANGE.
We are refining and improving our online class offerings every week. Thank you for your patience! See you on the dance floor!
"Daniel & Aileen have built such a warm, strong, and supportive community based out of Balance Studio, it was inconceivable we could all lose that connection in these surreal times. Behold! They bring Bahia In Motion to us in our office, living room, kitchen. Knowing I'm still dancing with my Samba Sistas wherever they may be (and Bahia in Motion has global reach!) is so very comforting and empowering amidst uncertainty. Love these people!"
"Taking Aileen and Daniel's Brazilian Dance class was truly the highlight of my week! I have been taking a number of online classes while in quarantine mode and this one was the best so far. I love how they have engineered their set up so that we can have the best sound possible (sounded great through my bluetooth speaker at home) and they have taken the time to get good lighting and position themselves where we can see all of their movement well. Their wonderful dynamic energy comes through - even through the screen, and I felt so much joy and positivity by the end. I was smiling from ear to ear! Oh and did I say that it's also a GREAT workout? Win-win. Thanks Bahia in Motion for helping us dance through these difficult times!"
"It has been amazing to connect with Bahia In Motion again through their online classes. I have been taking Afro-Brazilian Dance and Zumba from my home in Austin and can feel the energy, vibrancy and love radiating through the screen. It feels so great to move my body and workout high lasts for days. Can't recommend enough."
"Virtual classes with Bahia in Motion has offered me the time and space (my living room) for self care during this bizarre time. Classes offer balance of rhythmic movements, fun, and energetic exercise. The high quality of sound, video, and instructions make all these classes engaging and even while social distancing one can actually sweat! I would literally go insane if I didn't have these online classes right now. Thank you Aileen and Daniel for everything!"
