#176 – A New, Fun Kind of Workout! Introduction to Modern Dance for Adults with Millie Rhodes – Every Tuesday in the Heart of Buckhead!


Looking for a new, fun way to workout that is a great alternative to classes at your gym or running on the treadmill? Always wanted to take a dance class but not really sure what style is for you?

Friends of mine have been taking Modern Dance for Adults with Millie Rhodes for awhile now and have occasionally asked me to join them. I finally jumped on the bandwagon last Tuesday night and had a blast! introduction-to-modern-dance-adults-millie-rhodes-lee-harper-dance-studio-buckhead-atlanta-ga-2

This is a fun, laid back modern technique class, conveniently located in the heart of Buckhead at Lee Harper Dance Studio. “The goal is to provide you with an artistic, creative experience while also increasing your physical strength and flexibility; a creative alternative to going to the gym,” according to instructor, Millie Rhodes (pictured – above and at right).  Millie, an Atlanta native, earned a Bachelor of Arts in dance education from Goucher College and a Masters degree in dance from American University.  She has worked as a professor at the University of Georgia and since 2003 has taught in many schools and dance studios all over Atlanta.

The class is a relatively small class – class size varies weekly according to participants’ availability. You pay per-class – no signing up or commitment requried – and at only $7.00 per class, it’s a great deal! (I don’t know of another work-out or dance class that you can take for only $7.00!) And it’s fun – it’s all about having a good time, getting a good workout and learning a little bit about dance, too! Plus, it’s not just for us girls – it’s a co-ed class, so feel free to come on out, boys! (You know you want to!)

I’ll be there tonight – I’ve even talked a couple of friends into joining me. It’s a standing date on my calendar now! I hope you’ll consider coming – and if you can’t make it tonight, put it on your calendar for next week! Just email Millie to R.S.V.P. (see her email address below) and once you’re on her list, you’ll get a weekly reminder email (as well as be contacted if the class is cancelled for any reason).

Come check it out – I think you’ll be happy you did and have a blast burning some calories!

Questions? Contact Millie Rhodes at millie_rhodes@yahoo.com. Classes are Tuesdays, from 7:00 to 8:00 PM.
