Stretch Flow

Let’s stretch & flow, New Westminster

We are happy to announce our new class, Stretch Flow, at the new location and city, New West.

Over 2 years of teaching Brazilian samba, private classes, fitness, stretch and dance classes, we have been asked many times to get closer to Burnaby, New West and Surrey, etc. With the constant changes, closures and restrictions in 2020-21 it was quite a journey to make it happen. But, finally we have negotiated the best studio in New Westminster and happy to bring a new class to everyone of you.

Please register to enjoy the flow and to start your 1 hour full body flexi-experience. Great atmosphere, music, easy to follow instructions, attention and individual approach to each student, small group training is the way to go. If you have a stretching goal, you might start marking your “before” and check back in 8 classes with “after”.

E-transfer to to reserve your spot as there are only 8 spots available.

May you dance with ConfiDance

In April, we introduced a new private class that had so much positive feedback and demand. This is a customized class that Yulia has been offering privately since November 2020. In May we will continue to dance with existing private students and will open 5 more spots for new clients.

This class is great to boost your self-esteem, to prepare a surprise dance gift for someone special, to practice moves that you always wanted to learn, but never had anyone to teach or encourage you. It could be a preparation for any performance, event, occasion, it could be a partner dance. We offer this class for teenagers who are somewhat lost in what they want to do after finishing semi-pro sports career (eg., gymnastics, figure skating, etc.). Men have also requested this class to prepare themselves for “Magic Mike” shows at home… Anything that makes you feel awesome when you look at yourself in the mirror and specially when you see your own dance video recordings.

Let’s dance! Book your session here.
