  • A combo practice video to help work the movements into your regular practice!
  • Extensive cultural context info, including links and videos, related to each week's combo.

Let's shake off the stress and energize your week! People of all genders are welcomed and affirmed, ages 18+.

What Should I Wear?

Yoga or exercise clothing is best. Bare feet or indoor-only dance shoes like ballet or jazz shoes work well. Tie a scarf around your hips and you're ready to shimmy!


What if I miss a class?

Six-class cards are good for 8 weeks and can be used at any or all Shimmy Time classes (Lunchtime Wed/Fri, Evening Thu), so you can miss two classes without having your card expire. And you can rejoin the class with a new card or drop in at any time!
