Stone Valley Arts offers ballroom dance and Essentrics classes


Stone Valley Arts new lineup of ballroom dance and Essentrics classes will be held this winter at the Green Mountain Community School campus in the Waldron Gym, 1 Brennan Circle, Poultney. Essentrics Stretch and Strengthen, taught by Diane Sullivan, a certified Level 4 Essentrics instructor, is a unique age reversing workout designed to restore and maintain joint mobility, release tension, and systematically unlock tight muscles. 

The class will be held on Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m. 

The no-weight, low-impact workout will tone and strengthen  muscles, free up tight joints and rebalance your body. Postural imbalances, caused by everyday life and repetitive movements, can leave you with decreased mobility and lack of flexibility as well as growing aches and pains. Folks often assume all of this is just part of aging, but it doesn’t have to be. 

Essentrics creator Miranda Esmonde-White, a former ballerina with the National Ballet of Canada, from the PBS show Classical Stretch, spent years developing this highly beneficial technique. 

The program combines the lengthening and strengthening aspects of ballet, the flowing movement of Tai Chi, and the healing qualities of physiotherapy.
