Community Movement Offerings

We are no longer accepting registrations for our Winter session. Check back with us in January for the start of our 2023 classes.

Session Dates: Monday, September 12th – Sunday, December 11th, 2022

Threads is pleased to offer a number of open adult classes for movers of all experience and ability levels. Whether you’re a seasoned professional looking to try something new or stay in shape between gigs, or an avid dance lover who always wanted to take a Ballet class but thought it was too late–we promise there’s a point of connection for you.

Registration Details

To increase access and affordability, all Fall Session classes are being offered on a drop-in or open basis. This means you can pay for classes as you go rather than having to purchase an entire session or class card.

Every session, students must pre-register via our online form using the button to the right. You only need to do this once a session (Fall session runs 9/12-12/11/22).

Please noteALL students must complete the form ONCE EACH session, even if you’ve taken class at the Threads Dance Nexus before. However, students DO NOT need to fill out the form each time they take a class within the same session.
