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.

Student Testimonial:

"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!"
