PS21 has two unique venues in one stunning building on a bucolic setting just one mile outside the Village of Chatham: a traditional stage with open air seating protected by a sweeping pavilion roof as well as an enclosed black box theater. Equipped with state-of-the-art theatrical equipment, PS21 is able to accommodate a wide range of works by today's most brilliant artists in dance, theater and music.
Community Fitness with Jennifer Lawrence
Mondays and Saturdays, beginning at 10 am
Classes are 60 minutes
Jennifer Lawrence is the owner of The Firm Exercise Studio, which she purchased 35 years ago from the original owner. Having taught exercise classes in Chatham for 37 years, she believes exercise should be an enjoyable experience for all that pairs laughter with correct technique and form. Her classes are instructional, and she always aims to provide modifications for those with existing conditions and injuries. Each class varies and is tailored to those who are in attendance. Classes typically last an hour, including a warm up, low impact cardio section, strength training, core work, balance work, and a nice stretch that includes some elements of yoga. Participants are encouraged to bring a mat, but are also welcome to leave early if they are not comfortable getting down on the floor.

Classes will be held on the Theater Stage.
Restrooms are available in the theater lobby.
Please bring your own water, mat, and towel.

Our Pavilion Theater and Dance Barn are equipped with doors on two sides, providing safe, natural cross-ventilation.
Movement Without Borders is a perfect complement to PS21/Chatham PATHWAYS, our annual series of creative placemaking that fosters collaboration between regional and local artists and the community to enhance cultural life and well-being. Led by contemporary performance and theater luminaries, Movement Without Borders brings yoga, Pilates, exercise, dance, and self-expression to young and old. Instructors are drawn from talented professionals based in the Hudson Valley, visiting from Bennington’s MFA dance program, and elsewhere.
Movement Without Borders sessions are held in our sprung-floor Dance Barn, Pavilion Theater stage, and on PS21’s 100 acres of trails, open spaces, meadows, woodlands, and orchards. Open to the public from dawn to dusk, the grounds offer stunning views of the Catskills from the hills behind our theater. These priceless resources are available for our artists and our community, and there’s no better time than this spring and summer to get acquainted with this splendid “backyard.”
