With the help of our local drum and dance community, we’ve transformed an over-sized carriage house into a beautiful dance studio with a floating hardwood floor, noise-dampening walls, ductless heat/air-conditioning, high-speed internet, Bluetooth surround sound stereo system and a full wall of mirrors. A covered and beautifully lit, private outdoor courtyard invites guests to relax and gather outside the studio before and after classes. Live music is always encouraged and Denfinity offers a functional and tranquil space for smaller performances, private rehearsals, workshops, retreats, yoga and massage classes. Our studio is perfect for most types of movement arts or meditative therapies and is especially ideal for yoga practice. Over the years, we’ve hosted many types of dancers, teachers and classes including African drum and dance, ballet, belly, modern, hip hop, Sufi, dancehall, salsa, EDGU, Zumba, Afro-beat, Nia, circle, Lindy hop, ecstatic and beyond.
Our studio was founded on the belief that movement is an essential and uplifting experience for people of all ages/abilities and an accessible place is essential. With this in mind, e always do our best to make our studio available for rehearsals by local schools, community organizations, theater groups and artists who are developing and refining personal material. Denfinity Studio, in connection with Math is Magic! (www.mathismagic.info) invites you to come enjoy our space.
