This blog will cover online experienced dance classes perfect for lockdown. It will also cover a fantastic Nia Dance class perfect for experienced dancers or confident dance lovers, as well as what Nia Dance is and why it’s more beneficial than other dance forms.
As many already know, lockdown has hit hard and heavy in New Zealand with Alert Level 4 underway and no current signs of it being lifted in the near future. Many people have had to give up hobbies they enjoy due to business and public facilities no longer operating for the moment.
Multiple activity or skill-based classes are included in this mix, particularly dance and fitness sessions. Luckily, there’s a wonderful solution available that a few businesses are participating in: online classes. Online sessions for things like fitness or dance are becoming increasingly popular over lockdown.
It’s a great way to stay fit, productive, and take part in a fun hobby or practice your skills. Dance NZ is a Hamilton and Raglan-based dance company that practices the technique known as Nia Dance. All 5 classes available at Dance NZ are still running thanks to online Zoom sessions.
Why Nia Dance Over Other Dance Forms
If you’re a seasoned dancer or a fitness fanatic who is confident of your abilities and levels of mobility, consider incorporating Nia Dance into your lifestyle. Nia Dance offers not only physical benefits but mental, emotional, and spiritual benefits too.
This dance practice is a great choice too if you’re seeking a unique exercise routine, a workout that isn’t too strenuous on your body, or simply want to try something new. Unlike other dance classes you’ve participated in, Nia Dance is a non-impact technique that can be tailored to any individual’s needs or abilities.
It offers a wide range of benefits that touch on many aspects of your life and being, as well as teaching you skills and tools to help you improve your lifestyle and mindset outside of the studio. If you dislike sweaty, exhausting workouts like Zumba or Crossfit, Nia Dance is for you. It consists of 52 calming moves that will leave you with a renewed sense of calm energy at the end of each class.
Pain relief, released muscle tensions, weight loss, improved muscle strength, increased flexibility between joints and mobility, deeper spiritual connection, more opportunities for self-discovery, higher levels of endurance, improvements in organ function and cardiovascular health, and decreased symptoms of depression and anxiety are some of the most common benefits of Nia Dance.
Classic Nia Online
Classic Nia is a Dance NZ class that takes place every Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. and every Friday at 9:30 a.m. Currently, these classes are being held on Zoom, and are the most ideal classes available at Dance NZ for competent dancers and individuals with higher activity levels and mobility.
Just like in-person sessions, online classes will provide a supportive, welcoming, and judgment-free environment with your teacher and peers but through the internet. Belinda Goodwin is the only instructor at Dance NZ and will be guiding you through your Nia Dance routines in Classic Nia.
Belinda is a highly qualified and exceptional teacher, having recently obtained her brown belt in the Nia Technique. This means you will be taught and guided by the best hands. Your teacher also ensures that each movement may be performed at several levels of difficulty within each session, so you can challenge yourself while sticking to what you know.
With lockdown likely to be extended, don’t wait for Alert Level 2 to enjoy your favourite pastimes. Enjoy a new kind of dance, Nia Dance, through Dance NZ’s online Classic Nia Zoom sessions!
