Pilobolus is a dance company that was founded fifty years ago by non-dancers who made art by exploring new ways of moving together. They are now an American cultural Institution. The company was founded on the idea that everyone can dance, connect with their body, and access creativity through movement.

For those that missed Connecting with Balance at the Quick last spring, this is your chance to try it out.

Connecting with Balance is a progressive exercise program based on a half century of developing techniques that create opportunities to investigate your body and its relationship to gravity. Our video series provides guidance that allows participants to take class on demand and progress at their own pace through the 9 classes.

Most people don’t think about their balance until they fall. Don’t let that happen to you. Stop the decline in balance that occurs as we age by utilizing our preventative program.

Get in touch, and connect with balance.

This is a special one-time free offer with the Quick. To enjoy the full series, learn more by checking out the links below.
