Covid-19 News

I’ve had to halt all classes for children and am just starting back one adult class at a time. Depending on the level of restrictions here in Cork, I welcome you back to the studio for a very adapted Contemporary Dance Class for beginner and intermediate level during level 2 restrictions. As things have evolved quickly to level 3, this class just moved online.

If you have about 2m sq to move about freely, why not join the class? Thursdays 8 – 9pm. Check our schedule for yoga and dance classes at our Collective Cork studio to find out more!

Take care, mind yourselves and each other!
