Choreography Development and Creation  (for 6 year olds to senior citizens. Everyone can make dances. For non-dancers!!)  Ms. Fuhrman has toured the world holding workshops such as these via the modern dance company, Pilobolus.  Utilizing team-building strategies, we develop our self-esteem, stimulate creativity, get a great work out, and laugh a lot. From girls night out to executives that need to work on their communication skills…this is fun.
Line and Strengthening- This class can be for novices to pre-professionals to work on their ballet, stretch, and strength.  Exercises and combinations that will enhance performance, aerobic and anaerobic conditioning.
Character Development Classes- Ms. Fuhrman assists and facilitates what the artist is already working on.  She takes her 20 years in the industry and enhances the piece with technical precision and detailed artistry. With an already created piece, or an idea that desires to be fleshed out– this class helps develop work to the next level via journaling, lecturing, and application. (for the air or on the ground)
Stretch for All
- The advantages of stretch have been proven scientifically as a giant aid to health and happiness. A combination of yoga, ballet, and Pilates accessible to all levels enables enhanced movement to all types.  With her Masters in Dance Education, Ms. Fuhrman gently and diligently assists each person to relax, strengthen, let go, and stretch via breath, imagery, and anatomical aides.
Contact Improv class/ Weight sharing classes- learn to move with a partner and develop muscles and communication skills that enhance your physique and ability to interact and problem-solve with others. For ALL ages and movers.  Improves stability and balance.  A ton of exploration that helps illuminate the importance of staying in present moment and that application to life.  Very therapeutic.
GA®BT Bungee Classes- bounce like a baby in a bouncy chair while getting the workout of your life- and abs of steel.  If you have dreamt of soaring through the air with larger than life leaps- then take this class.  Do flips, with out getting close to the ground, safely and clearly. This can be double point classes, or single point classes.
Wall Dancing Classes– Dancing and flipping on the wall. A ridiculous work out, perspective shifter, a really fun time– and another reality of the horizontal aerial world!
