Dancing Nia aprés Remus

Thu, 02/26/2015 - 8:46am -- Karen Firebaugh

Remus swept though last night, dumping 4-6 inches of beautiful, wet, perfect (according to my hubby) snowman snow! Since Studio Elevé is closed and Nia class is cancelled, just hunker down, stay safe, stay warm. But here's a Nia 52 Moves class if you need a little something to dance in your living room. 

See you next week, for sure! be there! 

Tips for New (and Old) Nia Students

Sun, 01/11/2015 - 5:42pm -- Karen Firebaugh
I am so excited to bring Nia to Kernersville NC at Studio Elevé Thursdays at 5:30 beginning January 15th. Though I fell in love with Nia instantly, the Judge in my head was often critical if I didn't get the steps "right". I took me a while to realize there in no wrong way to Nia. Yes, there is choreography and, yes, it's fun to follow it. But Nia is all about self-expression and sometimes that self moves left when the teacher moves right. If you look around the room in a Nia class (and on the Nia routine DVDs), if you're not too busy just smiling away as you dance, you'll see no two people interpret the move the same way. There is the Form of Nia (choreography based on Nia's 52 Moves). And there is the Freedom of Nia (bringing your unique, beautiful, magical self to the dance). Here are a few tips for new (and old) students.
