We are refining and improving our class offerings every week. Thank you for your patience! See you on the dance floor!
We have really been enjoying dancing and training with you all so much during these last 2 years during such a challenging time. 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, and now, once again in-person! 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, Leslie, 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.
"Thank you so much for today's class! I didn't think I could get out of my head, but that did it... what a gift... I started taking Zumba at least 10 years ago now. Who would have guessed that all these years later your classes, studio and all around goodness would be a lifeline during a pandemic..."
"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 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...and I felt so much joy and positivity by the end...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!"
