ABOUT KELLY CONRAD: Claire Holm is a Speech-Language Pathologist, Musical Improviser and Spirit Junkie. It all started in college when friends lured her from the safety of her musical theater bubble into the adrenaline rush of musical improv. 14 years and hundreds of musicals later, Claire now performs regularly with ‘Thank You Places’, a Philly based team that creates an entire musical on the spot. Claire has been fortunate to study at The Magnet, IO, and Annoyance and loves to share the art & science of spontaneous song making. She is the proud mother of 3 cats and a gazillion plants.
ABOUT THE LOCATION: This is unfortunately not an accessible space. Philly Dance Fitness is located at 1923 Chestnut Street above the Trek bike shop in Center City. Head up the stairs, then through the doorway at the back of the second floor landing. We highly recomomend biking, walking, or taking public transportation as this location is in the heart of Center City. This location is surrounded by several bus and trolly routes. Paid street parking is available throughout the area but can be difficult to find. There are various paid parking lots in the area as well.
COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS: All our instructors are fully vaccinated. All students must be fully vaccinated – including booster shots! Students will be required to email a photo of their vax upon enrollment. Masks will be optional though this guidance can change. Students should stay home if they are ill the day of class. Any student that tests positive for COVID-19 agrees to inform the theater and to stay home until they provide proof of a negative test.
