The Lively Foundation meets your needs to keep moving and stay fit during this time of sheltering in place. Our Artistic Director, Leslie Friedman, now offers an Adult Ballet class Tuesdays, 4 – 5 P.M. using the Zoom platform. The class is designed to use little space. It includes a thorough barre plus brief dance phrases which may be done in place or with very little travel through space. Everyone, Pros to Beginners, does barre exercises in ballet. It is the universal language. All ages, all levels of experience do the barre work daily or once a week; it is always the same. It offers so many benefits: work on your core and leg strength, breathe deeply, lift your posture, gain flexibility and self-confidence. And, maybe best of all, it is something you can do all your life. Price: $15 per class. Pay for 3 classes; get the 4th one free. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Lively Foundation is proud to announce a new class, Adult Ballet. The class meets at 7 p.m. at 890 Church St., the Mountain View Masonic Center, Mountain View, CA.

She focuses on good technique to protect your body and the love of movement. Her goal is for everyone of whatever experience and training to enjoy themselves dancing.
Dr. Friedman has performed to great acclaim around the world. The US State Dept. sponsored her tours with host countries in India, Russia, China, Spain, Hungary, Romania, Poland, and many other countries.
