's dance instructor Jamie Lerner has a great cure for your leftover winter lethargy and stress - dance, dance, dance your way to this week's Great Escape.
Lerner, who studied ballet, modern dance, ethnic, and jazz dancing for 17 years on both coasts, approaches her dance instruction with widely adaptive methods, so there's no need to be apprehensive, even if you've hardly danced before. As The Body Shop's bio says, "Jamie has helped hundreds of people look, feel, and move better."
Revive your old dance skills or start completely from dancin' scratch in East Hampton with Lerner's , in which you'll get a chance to try your skills at hip-hop, salsa, lyrical jazz, and funk styles. Comfortable clothing is suggested for the class, and participants are asked to please wear dance footwear, indoor-only sneakers, or go barefoot.
The best part, in addition to the benefits and stress relief you'll get from the movement and fun of the dance itself, is that this class is extremely affordable, with just a donation requested.
