Center for Dance and Body:
The Center for Dance and Body is located on the Upper East Side of New York City and offers a wide range of dance and fitness classes. Body Ballet, our signature class, was created by CDAB founder Anna Lederfeind and is a unique Ballet Barre Workout that allows even non-dancers to achieve a ballet dancer physique. Each class, for amateurs, pre-professionals, and professionals alike, takes place in an atmosphere of serious purpose, concentration on physical improvement, personal care and attention, and a sense of joy and musicality. We offer private instruction in addition to classes. Custom-designed training, in particular audition preparation for pre-professional schools, are special features of the curriculum. We offer small classes and lots of personal attention.
Originally from Belgium, Anna began dancing at age seven at the Conservatoire de la Danse directed by Maurice Béjart, and studied with Jacques Saussin and Dolores Laga. Anna has performed as a principal dancer for Theatre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels, and at Royal Theaters in Aachen, Lubeck and Hamburg. In New York, Anna trained with Nenette Charisse and Lee Theodore of the American Dance Machine. Anna has been a guest ballet teacher for pre-professionals at The Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance as well as teaching Master classes in basic ballet in other schools.
Additionally, Ms.Lederfeind is an ABT® (American Ballet Theatre) Certified Teacher , having successfully completed the ABT® Teacher Training Intensives in Primary through Level 7 and Partnering of the ABT® National Training Curriculum. As a lifelong dance professional, Anna also founded CDAB (Center for Dance and Body) as a way to make the artistry and athleticism of dance accessible to adults, both professionals and non-professionals.

"Attending classes at CDAB makes me feel confident, healthy, energized, and beautiful. I have been a runner, taken Pilates classes, and worked out at the gym. What is unique about CDAB is the personal touch with professional dancer/instructors like Anna and Rio who not only push you to your fullest potential, but teach you how to move your muscles properly and how to move your body the right way. There is a strong focus on proper technique and correct posture.
Floor Barre and Ballet Barre emphasize sculpting, toning, and grace, while Cardio Dance emphasizes strengthening, coordination, and flexibility. Having started out with the Cardio Dance classes and added the Body Ballet classes, Anna and Rio taught me how the two classes compliment one another beautifully for the perfect balance of workout. Now I am committed to attending each class at least once a week, and my body and mind have never looked or felt better! The studio is conveniently located in walking distance from my apartment on the Upper East Side!" - Suzie, Dedicated Fab Dancer
