Overview of LAVA Classes:

LAVA classes serve youth and adults who seek the inspiration, transformation, and joy of the movement used in LAVA performances.

Classes teach a basic yet rigorous movement vocabulary that uses acrobatics, dance, and other forms to improve strength, flexibility, and coordination; by working with groups and partners, students also gain communication and conflict-resolution skills that are invaluable in all walks of life.

Unlike traditional gymnastics or dance classes, the LAVA method focuses on connection with our physical, social, creative, and intellectual selves. Teachers have trained in Chinese acrobatics with Mr. Lu Yi and the San Francisco Circus Center, and classes incorporate instructors' experience in dance, improvisation, theater, capoeira, yoga, martial arts, and body awareness.


The LAVA Studio is at 524 Bergen Street (between 6th and Carlton Aves) in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn.

Directions to the LAVA Studio via subway:
If you take the 2/3 to Bergen street:
As you go through the turnstile, go to your LEFT and up the stairs. Once you are at street level, you will be at the intersection of Bergen and Flatbush, facing Flatbush. Cross Flatbush, cross 6th Ave, and keep walking on Bergen. LAVA will be halfway down the block on your RIGHT: look for the black door with small red letters that say LAVA.

If you take the Q or B to 7th Ave:
As you go through the turnstile, go to your RIGHT and up the stairs. Once you are at street level, turn around the turn right on Carlton. Walk on Carlton 3 blocks and turn LEFT onto Bergen. LAVA will be half way down the block on your LEFT: look for the black door with small red letters that say LAVA.
