Kids' Dance, Yoga, & Creative Movement Classes at Joe's Movement Emporium + FREE CLASS!


If you've seen my post here about the Adults' Movement Classes at Joe's Movement Emporium in Mt. Rainier, then you've noticed how much I enjoy movin' and shakin' (ideally more movin' than shakin' but still...). So it should come as no surprise to learn that my young ones love to get movin', too! Thankfully, Joe's also offers fun weekday and weekend movement classes for kids of all ages! Baby digs yoga? There's a class here for that. Toddler likes to run around and explore while whirling a hula hoop? There's a class here for that. First grader and up likes to dance to hip hop or jazz? There's a class here for that.

☘ Lucky for you, Route One Fun readers can try a Youth Movement class of your choice for FREE! Register here for a class, enter code ROUTE1MOVESITMINI at checkout through May 31st and voila, your kid's class is free! 👏

Toddler Movement Playdate: Mondays @ 10:30am-12pm
Explore physical expression in an open dance studio with guided activities and exciting props to create a world of sensory exploration for toddlers and their accompanying adults.
*Loved this class for my wee one. Who knew kid-sized hula hoops would bring so much joy? She usually takes a while to warm up to a class so I wasn't sure what to expect but with this one - she jumped, leaped, crawled, danced and skipped her way into and through this class!

Flexing our cat/cow poses!

Toddler Yoga: Tuesdays @ 10-10:45am (Crawling to 24-months)
Each class includes circle time, songs, modified yoga poses for adults and their little ones, and time for relaxation. Classes include gross motor and creative movement games and activities (often with props), storytime, and--of course—bubbles.


Baby Yoga: Tuesdays @ 11-11:45am (1 and under)
This mindful movement practice is appropriate for little ones ages 6 weeks-not-quite-crawling with their primary caregivers. Caregivers learn how to gently move their babies into postures to promote digestion, sleep, and an awareness of their wee bodies.

Creative Movers: Wednesdays @ 10:30-11:30am (Crawlers & up)
Active children will love to move in a class that integrates creative play, storytelling, dance basics, and music. Features activities to increase movement vocabulary, stamina and coordination along with listening, practicing patience, and responding to ideas with movement or rhythm.
*We had a great time at this class! Great mix of movement, building skills, listening, cooperating and storytelling wrapped up into one class! 


My graceful tumbler...!

Leap, Jump & Jam: Saturdays @ 11:15am-12pm (Ages 3-5)
A creative movement class for new dancers ages 3-5. Dancers will be introduced to the fundamentals of dance through fun movement games and exercises.

Riverdale Park's Waggertail Dog Park & More Dog Parks Along Route One!

Got a four-legged, canine-type bestie? Then this post about local dog parks in our area is for you two/three/four!


Spent some time at Riverdale Park's Waggertail Dog Park earlier this week with our four-legged friend and my offspring bipeds. If you haven't been there yet, know that it's a great, local dog park run by the Town of Riverdale Park in cooperation with M-NCPPC. According to this brochure, the park opened in 2016 and is "dedicated to the memory of the late Judy Glaes, long time Riverdale Park resident, and a true friend to dogs."


It's open to all Prince George's County residents and their canine friends, though you do need to register your dog at Riverdale Park Municipal Offices to use the park. Registration is easy: proof of resident in Prince George's County and your dog's Prince George's County dog license.


Children ages 5-17 are allowed to enter Waggertail Dog Park so long as accompanied by an adult. Lil lady had to hang back with her dad. Poor thing. 😆


Waggertail Dog Park is huge, at least, compared to the dog parks I'm used to in DC and Manhattan. Actually, at over two acres of space - by any measure - it's really big. Plenty of room for the doggies to let loose. I did like that there were two fenced areas, one for big dogs and the other for the small variety. There's even a Facebook page for this group: The Friends of Waggertail Dog Park!



Two benches for folks to rest as their dogs cavort around the park. Water fountains. And plenty of doggie cleaning stations, stocked with poop bags.


Riverdale Park Waggertail Dog Park
51st Ave, Riverdale Park, MD 20737
From brochure: "Waggertail Dog Park is located at the end of 51st Avenue in front of the large baseball field and next to the tennis courts in Riverdale Community Recreation Park."
Parking: "If you drive to the park, turn off Kenilworth Ave at River Road and enter the Riverdale Community Recreation Park at Haig Drive, where there is ample parking. Once you park, follow the sidewalk that runs between the middle of the ball fields, towards 51st Avenue. The dog park will be on your right past the tennis courts. 

List of other dog parks in/around Route One!  

Note: Some require membership and/or dues. I haven't checked these out yet but if you do, report back and comment here on your experience. Likewise, if you know of another great dog park to check out, leave info in the comments and I'll get to it!

Get Movin' at Joe's Movement Emporium (+ FREE CLASS!)

All Smiles After the Carribean Vibes Cardio Class!

One of my New Year's Resolutions is to get movin' again, plain and simple. Not "get back into shape." Not "tone up." Not to get back to pre-baby or pre-whatever weight. Just to get moving again. I have more fun, enjoy life that bit more when I'm moving to some sort of rhythm, which is why I was thrilled when Joe's Movement Emporium in Mt. Rainier reached out to invite me to check out their new Adult Movement Classes! Their timing was perfect!

From Hip Hop Dance, Caribbean Vibes Cardio, and Salsa to Vinyasa Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Pilates, and Tai Chi - Joe's has a wide menu of ways to get movin'! I huffed, puffed and occasionally wheezed my way through a number of the classes just so that I could give you the 411 on what to expect. 😊 As you will see in the photos and videos below, the classes were so much fun for all levels, incredibly affordable and a great way to get movin' on into 2018! (The speaker (🔊) icon signals the classes that I checked out and gives you my take on why you, too, should check it out!)

**Lucky for you, Joe's is offering Route One Fun readers the chance to try a class of your choice for free! Go here to register for a class, enter code ROUTE1MOVESIT at checkout through May 31st and voila, your class is free! 👏

💃 Adults' Movement Classes at Joe's Movement Emporium 💃

Before I jump to class descriptions, I want to highlight how affordable these classes are, especially as money is often our bottom line. The Joe's 10-Class Pass gets you 10 classes for $110 (that's $11/class)(seniors enjoy $80 rate ($8/class)! You can take 10 of the same classes or mix it up. You can also share your class pass so you can bring a friend, neighbor - whomever you wish to join you for some workout fun! Afraid of commitment? Well, first try the class for free using the discount code above. 😊 Then rest happy knowing the drop-in rate is $13/class (senior drop-in: $10).

Vinyasa Yoga with Brooke Kidd
Nurture the harmony of mind and body - work with alignment and awareness, deep stretching and relaxation for a revitalizing experience.
🔊 This class is p.e.r.f.e.c.t. for those new to or reacquainting themselves to yoga. First off, it's taught by Brooke Kidd, Executive Director of Joe's, so you know she knows her stuff! 😉 Secondly, the gentle pace of the class really gave me a chance to stretch - which is something that feels so good and which I really don't do often enough. Having this class as part of my weekly routine would help make that happen! Thirdly, the class is easy to follow as Brooke incorporates poses familiar to anyone who's ever heard of yoga, like downward-facing dog, warrior's pose, and cobra pose and then floats modifications to make the pose easier or to allow you to dig deeper.

Practicing the tree pose with Brooke Kidd!

Gentle Yoga 
Similar to above - excellent class for beginners to yoga, those with limited mobility or recently recovering from an injury.

Inferno Pilates
Pilates meets circuit training in this high intensity, low impact, interval-training, workout.
🔊 I was nervous at first about this class; anything with the word "inferno" in its title makes me sweat! ;) Inferno, however, refers to the high-intensity interval-style of the class that will get your heart rate moving - not the temperature of the class! It's amazing how such small movements can really get your muscles burning! Instructor Tyecia Powell was so good at modifying movements and mixing the moves up every two minutes was just the right amount of time to feel the burn without collapsing from exhaustion! Check out this post-class video recapping some of our fave moves! :) 


Hip Hop Dance
Dancers will explore hip hop and street jazz movements along with various street styles at a challenging, yet suitable pace.
🔊 Come with skillz, come with no skillz (like me...) & you'll have a blast! Instructor Kendra Johnson knows a thing or two about dance - she's trained in ballet, modern dance, hip hop and African Dance! 👏 I've joked before that my dance moves look more like those of Tina Fey than Rhianna, but Kendra managed to break down some mighty intimidating moves into pieces that me and the ladies could manage. She keeps an eye out for folks like me who are clearly new to the moves and will patiently go through the routine again until we get the hang of it - or at least something close!  We had a blast learning the moves and are all encouraged to check Hip Hop Dance out again! 


Caribean Vibes Cardio 
Caribbean Vibes Cardio is a perfect for Caribbean Dance and Music Lovers. Easy to follow high energy steps focusing on cardio and toning all to the best Dancehall, Soca, Afro Beat music and dances!
🔊 I was super-excited for this class but made sure I stayed near the exit - in case me and my moves needed to escape! 😆 No escape necessary though as instructor Erica Rae did a great job of demonstrating the moves and adjusting the music to fit our collective speed. I love dancehall music so getting the chance to actually learn some legit moves (Willie Bounce, Wacky Dip anyone?!!) was so cool! Curious? Just use the free code and do it! :) 


Beginner Salsa
Progressive beginner level class is designed to provide a comprehensive introduction to the rich culture of salsa music and dance. Classes will begin with body movement/isolation warm up exercises to release tension and get you moving comfortably and confidently to Latin rhythms. A great opportunity to learn and refine your social dance skills in a safe, friendly, fun and exciting environment.

Tai Chi
Take it slow and enjoy the movement through the study of Tai Chi Chun long form. Instructor Normon Greene is a student and teacher of Tai Chi Chaun long form for over 40 years. He has taught Tai Chi to youth, adults and families in Montgomery County and in youth services.

This past weekend, I got the chance to check out Rabbit Summer by playwright Tracey Conyer Lee at Joe's Movement Emporium and wanted to take this time to recommend you check it out because it was so good, so timely and so well done. *And I just learned that at this Saturday's 2pm matinee, the audience is invited to stay for a post-show discussion with playwright Tracey Conyer Lee, as part of the 2018 Women's Voices Theater Festival! 👏

Good vibes & Funky Fashion at Nisey's Boutique, Mt. Rainier


Have you stopped by Nisey's Boutique in Mt. Rainier yet? If not, here's why you should check it out:

1. Meet Ms. Nisey Baylor 

Nisey Baylor is a beloved powerhouse. After running a number of retail businesses in Washington, DC, including two City Kids stores on Capitol Hill, Nisey opened Nisey's Boutique in Mt. Rainier in 1997. Proximity to DC and a growing, vibrant arts scene attracted her to the area; a growing, supportive clientele and firm roots in the local community is what keeps her here.

All four walls of Nisey's Boutique share kind words of praise from celebrities, politicians and community members, acknowledging her work and business ethic. Nisey shared that sometimes people view the photos as a form a bragging. I didn't see it that way at all. What I see are words from folks who appreciate her presence and what she seems to bring to the community. Moreover, you know that were this store to be called "Norman's" and run by a dude, folks wouldn't be speaking this way.  Keep it up, Nisey!


2. Explore the Colorful, Eclectic Array of Jewelry, Clothing, Accessories & More!

From colorful earrings to vibrant daishiki skirts to funky, handmade totes to this beautiful bag below, this lady's got everything. I spent enough time in there to notice a couple of folks stop by and ask for items that weren't on display, like a woman who asked Nisey to show her a collection of African hats. Nisey pulled out a bag from behind the counter and the two of them had a fun time modeling the different styles! :)

 

 


3. Check Out the Organic Body Butters and Natural Hair Care Products 

Wide variety of natural body lotions & butters as well as hair products. I didn't get a chance to capture them all but here's a sampling!




4. Enjoy Lively Conversation with an Experienced Small Business Owner 

You'll spot this tea station first thing when you walk inside Nisey's Boutique. It's her way of  welcoming you into the store and introducing you to some of the local events happening in the community, a la flyers and postcards lining the nearby wall.


Linger long enough, as I did 😃, and Nisey will share stories about how this particular bag was made or how this local artist was inspired to create that painting. You can tell she really puts a lot of thought into deciding what items to sell. It also sounds like she does a fair amount of mentoring local artisans and makers, looking to start their own small businesses. Based on her longevity, they'd be wise to heed her advice!

If you are looking for something special, unique and different, support local small businesses and check out Nisey's!

Joanna Blake's "Great Blue Herons" Sculpture

In my earlier post here about the new sculptures arriving in Riverdale Park, I promised an upcoming post about the nearby "Great Blue Herons" sculpture, meticulously designed by the late Joanna Blake. Over winter break, I got a chance to check out her great work in person and am excited to share pictures of the sculpture as well as some background on the sculpture and its revered artist with all of y'all:


If you've driven by (or walked or biked, for that matter) the intersection of East West Highway and Route One over the last month of so, you've seen this sculpture by its northeast corner.


According to this article from the Hyattsville Life & Times, Blake won a grant by the Riverdale Public Art Initiative and the Prince George’s County Environmental Public Art Project back in 2015 to have her sculpture installed at this intersection. Positioning the sculpture here was deliberate and intended to "serve as an environmental meditation for the heavily-trafficked and highly visible intersection of East-West Highway and Route One," according to this Hyattsville CDC's press release.


The press release goes on to note that Blake's sculpture will "evoke the Northeast and Northwest Branches of the Anacostia River, where the sculpture’s avian subjects can be seen in their natural habitat less than a half-mile away. Herons depicts three herons joined with outstretched wings at their tips, forming the international symbol for recycling, atop a tall steel base at the office building’s south lawn."


I never had a chance to meet Ms. Blake, but I know of how respected and beloved she was by so many folks in our local communities. It's nice to see her work live on in this sculpture and in the “Undaunted in Battle” War of 1812 commemorative sculpture that resides at the intersection of Baltimore Avenue and Bladensburg Road in Bladensburg.
