As the snow slows down and we are all increasingly excited for warmer weather, we invite you to join us at the Chifferobe Atelier as we heat things up with a dynamic duo of dance workshops!
THE ROSIE Sundays 2-3:30 pm Join us for 6 Sundays of Beginning to Level 2 tap as we work on learning new tricks and reviewing old. Eventually, our tap vocabulary will fall into place as a performance-worthy routine. Tap shoes are not required, but advice/information about where to find them will be offered. Costumes for the performance on Thursday, April 9th are not included, and will be discussed during week one or two of the workshop. $100
THE BETTY Mondays 8:15-9:15 pm Over the course of 6 Monday evenings, we will work on a showgirl/retro-fabulous routine. Dancers of all levels are welcome to participate in this workshop, which will start with a brief warm-up that is focused on lengthening and toning. Due to the length of the class, and focus on developing a performance-ready routine, participants are encouraged to attend the prior Monday class, Cardio Belly Dance from 7-8pm, without an additional fee. Costumes are not included. $100
Concluding performances for both workshops will take place at The Sweet little Variety Show at Aurora Providence on Thursday, April 9th.
Register here today! The maximum number of participants per workshop is 10, and the minimum is 6. If for any reason, we do not meet the minimum number of attendees, you will have at least three days notice. Many thanks in advance for your understanding.
spring WELLNESS SALON ON MON mar 23
Whether our winter wonderland has afforded you some much needed downtime or it has taken a toll on your overall wellness, spring is almost here! Our Winter Wellness Salon was geared towards self-love and a more positive approach to the idea of New Year's resolutions, and this happening is intended to keep us on that path while focusing on restorative practices. Spring in New England can be tough, with cold and bouncy weather patterns, that may leave us surprisingly depleted and susceptible to illness. We hope to offer guests of this salon a few options for maintaining wellness and perhaps even rejuvenating our bodies and minds as the seasons change.
We are excited to be partnering with some of our favorite local spas and wellness gurus for this special happening, including:
*Chifferobe's own Yogi, Melissa Freitas KYT 200, who will be guiding us through a restorative yoga session.
*Shannon Sexton Potter of Harmony on Hope, who will be offering mini-massages.
*Abby Backlund of Breathing Space (and owner of Facing Thayer), who will be speaking about the benefits of Ayurvedic Medicine and Reiki as well as offering consultations.
Guests are also welcome to enjoy healthy nibbles and mocktails, and each person will leave with a signature Chifferobe tote bag filled with goodies from participants and sponsors!
Please come in comfortable clothing, and bring a yoga mat, if you have one. Check-in begins at 5:45 and yoga will start at 6. $30 per person or $50 for two. Registration opens on Monday, March 9th.
coming later this spring! april
