FIRST CLASS EXPERIENCE: It took me a good year to come to The Class by Taryn Toomey after first hearing about it. I couldn't sleep one night - thinking, thinking, thinking & decided on a whim to book in. Showed up at Downtown Dance Factory with no idea what to expect and spent most of the class just trying to keep up. And then just wept in heart clearing. Hooked.
