The indomitable Maureen Duke, quarantining from her tour of "An American in Paris" is going to give us strength! It's time for a little quarantine self-care!  All are welcome! This will be a 50-minute full-body workout.  The class is made up of low impact, small movements that are easy on the joints, and focuses on toning and conditioning. All the exercises can be modified for more/less intensity or to accommodate injuries. You just need a light set of weights (soup cans or water bottles work well too), and a mat/towel to lie down on. No dance experience required!  For ages 16 and up.  See you at the barre!
