Guest Classes

Alchemy has guest teachers that rent our studio to bring you a wide variety of classes and workshops. Some guest teachers have long-standing class series; others offer one-off workshops. These classes are NOT part of the Alchemy punch-card payment system. You will pay the teacher directly and we will note the cost on the schedule listing.

Juliet Seskind is coming in the Fall!

What: Ayre

When: thursdays at 10:30a!

Juliet has a background in dance, and has been teaching movement classes since 2001.  Her passion for music and creating her own choreography inspired her to create “Ayre” in 2012.  She chose this name because Ayrshire Scotland is where she has a lot of family and where her mother grew up.  It also has other meanings that seem fitting — music being one! Juliet draws from a wide variety of music and dance styles.  Her classes provide a high energy, upbeat, full body workout.  Juliet always welcomes new “Ayreheads” , and enjoys teaching to a variety of levels and experience.
