PJ Day for the Kids!

Thank you to our dancers who danced in their PJs for our PJ Day for the Kids fundraiser event! Together we raised $100 for kids fighting cancer at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center!

PJ Day for the Kids is an opportunity for students and businesses across the state to show support for patients at CCMC. Over the last 7 years, participants have worn PJ's in honor of children at the hospital who must wear their PJ's for extended periods of time while fighting cancer or other serious illnesses.

This fundraiser event was started by a 7-year-old boy who wanted to give back to CCMC after his baby sister was successfully treated for cancer.

Pilates 101

Pilates focuses on integrating all parts of the body into one, rather than segregating the body into inefficiently working parts. It aims to restore the natural curvature of the spine, re-balance the muscles, and re-train the body to move safer and more efficiently. Pilates 101 will go deeply into the basic principles of the technique, and the importance of alignment and proper muscle recruitment. Practice doesn't make perfect...PERFECT practice makes perfect! It takes 300 repetitions to create a bad habit and 3,000 repetitions to undo that bad habit! Perfecting these Pilates principles will allow you to apply them to all the other areas of your daily life, and prevent the bad habits and resulting injuries that would otherwise occur.

Holiday Season 2016

Here at New Steps the kids (and the faculty) enjoyed the Holiday Season by dressing in costume for dance class during Halloween week, "decorating pumpkins" and at the end of the year we decorated for the Holidays by "building snowmen" and collecting donations for a local charity or organization in need. This year we collected supplies to help the Judy Dworin Performance Project, Ine. Bridging Boundaries. As always, we ended the year with our Faculty Holiday Party complete with a yoga class from our very own Laura and a yummy meal from First & Last Tavern.
