Misako Ballet Studio is an excellent studio whether you are a beginner or professional dancer. My wife Linda has been going to Misako for over 3 years and constantly talks about how Misako is a patient teacher. She takes the time to give individualized instruction to each of her students. She is very kind and caring - her classes are always fun and instructive. Art S.

Zumba is perfect for everybody and every body! Each Zumba® class is designed to bring people together to sweat it on. Zumba takes the "work"  out of workout by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and world rhythms take over, you'll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective? Check. Super fun? Check and check. Zumba is beneficial, because it is a total workout, combining all elements of fitness: cardio, muscle conditioning, balance and flexibility, boosted energy and a serious dose of awesome each time you leave class.
