Classes and Workshops
Marin Boieru’s Adult Beginner Ballet class
Marin Boieru is a ballet master at Carolina Ballet and has been a renown principal dancer in Europe and the USA. He has been the recipient of a gold medal of the international Ballet Competition in Varna and a silver medal of the International Ballet Competition in Moscow. Ballet is a great movement modality and safe for all ages and abilities, particularly when taught by an experienced teacher like Marin. Regardless of whether you never did ballet, took classes ‘way back when’, or had been more serious about it, you will enjoy this class. All you need is something to hold on to, be it a barre, a kitchen counter or a chair.

There is no fixed pricing; $15 is suggested. To pay, please use Karin’s Venmo or PayPal accounts and write “For Marin’s Class” in the comment box.

Max Isaacson’s Stretch Classes
Max Isaacson is a professional ballet dancer and would like to help people find a better physical and emotional space with his unique stretch, breathing and relaxation classes. Recommended props are a chair, 2 pillows, a long strap, belt or towel, and ideally a wall/sofa for back support and stability. The classes are designed for ordinary humans, not ballet dancers.
Here is a testimonial from a regular participant of his classes: “I have taken Max’s classes for several months now, and have truly enjoyed the relaxed and supportive atmosphere. With his dancer’s experience, Max offers intuitively helpful modifications as needed, and I have become more flexible with noticeably fewer muscle aches – to the point where I am essentially pain free. I highly recommend his class!” Philippa C.

Karin’s SMART Rolling Classes
During this challenging time, I am offering online foam rolling classes to help restore balance and alignment. Those classes are a unique blend of different myofascial release techniques including the MELT Method, Relief through Rolling and others. The (hopeful) outcome of the class is that you feel better aligned. Many people say that they feel as if they just had a massage.
Wednesday 5 to 6 PM EDT, Zoom link https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89791912638
Thursday 10 to 11 AM EDT, Zoom link https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84782918297
These two classes use a 36 inch foam roller; a soft roller is strongly recommended.
Sunday 6 to 7:15 PM EDT, Zoom link https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87018958011
In addition to the 36 inch soft roam roller, I also use an 18 inch firm roller and a ball like a tennis ball in the Sunday class.
Given the dire situation for many, there is no fixed pricing. A suggestion would be $15 but please do not let this be a hindrance to participating. Please direct payment in any amount to my

I look forward to seeing you in cyberspace.
