MY STORY

Mika Banks, a native Chicagoan, is endlessly overjoyed to be part of the R&M family. Teaching since 2011, she brings a spicy sense of humor, a goofy persona, strong dance and instructing background and a relentlessly genuine smile that could melt the heart of the staunchest grinch in the room. Mika has a BA in Acting and Contemporary Dance from Beloit College, a minor in Geology, black belt in Seido Karate and is a Nationally Certified massage therapist. She's danced professionally on and off for companies in Ecuador, Chicago, and San Francisco. Her classes are exciting, accessible and designed to celebrate that insatiable desire to move your body.

Rhythm & Motion (Modern)

About this class
Icon_ionic-ios-arrow-back Copy 4

Rhythm & Motion dance workout classes, taught by experienced dancers and performing artists, are open to students of all levels and abilities. Classes incorporate a broad range of movement and music styles, with choreography inspired by popular music from around the world, including Latin, hip hop, African, alternative, and R&B. Our Modern format is rooted in contemporary and modern dance vocabulary. Students build core strength and technique through floor and barre-inspired choreography, and then move to standing choreography for technical skill and lyrical, full-body movement for stamina and strength. Suggested attire: Comfortable clothing that you can easily move in (e.g. tank tops, t-shirts, shorts, yoga pants). This class is generally done in bare feet.
