Dance, Qigong and more


Learn how to swing dance (aka lindy hop)!  It’s the original partner dance of the big band era of the 1920’s and 1930’s and it has enjoyed a resurgence since the 1990’s.  There are 10,000+ dancers in the DC / Baltimore area and places to dance almost every night of the week.  Join on Thursday nights with Byron Willis, in partnership with Gottaswing.

More about Byron Willis :

A seed was planted back in 2006 when Byron took local lindy hop (swing dancing) classes, but due to time demands from work was unable to continue.  In 2013, YouTube videos inspired Byron to return to the dance and ignited a passion in him for the dance that burns strong today.  Byron developed his ability as a dancer and a teacher through hundreds of classes and thousands of practice hours.  He began teaching group classes and private lessons locally in the Dupont Circle area in Nov 2015, and he now weekly instructs an enthusiastic and welcoming group of students, and travels throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast to workshops, camps, and competitions.  Byron also gives back to the community by posting many lindy hop related videos on his YouTube channel (200,000 views!).  You can often find Byron on the dance floor at the social dance that he organizes on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month in Dupont called Lindy in the City (FB Group: Lindy in the City).

In these stressful times, we want to offer some peace and restoration for your body and mind: Introducing Qigong to Quantum Pilates.
Qigong represents an entire branch of Chinese Medicine that in part provides how to use movement, breath, sound, creative visualization and spiritual intent to support and promote progress toward health and wholeness. It lessens pain, removes blocks, and creates a new internal matrix from which to celebrate life.

Classes are  55 minutes long and will build on each other. The exercises that are learned in class provide you with enough skills to develop your home practice.
