  • Dallas, TX (1888PressRelease) October 28, 2011 - Classic Pilates, a classical Pilates studio in Uptown, will celebrate its Grand Opening at a reception and art show on Saturday, Nov. 5, 7-10 p.m., at 3303 Lee Parkway, Suite 105. The event, "Progressions: A Collaboration in Health and Art," will feature "The Seven Project," a collaboration between seven artists from different styles and backgrounds. The idea is to create seven fine art pieces among seven artists in seven days each. Each of the seven pieces will be a timed, rotational collaboration among all the artists.

    The reception will also feature new works from these Dallas artists: Christian Millet, Carolyn Collins, Nix Johnson, Liz London, Gina Dunn, Taylor Douglas McClure, Richard Ross, Frankie Garcia III and Renee Vandevere. It will also include an acrobatic Pilates demonstration by special guest instructor Grace Ranson of Momentum Pilates Studio in Charlottesville, Va. The exercises that will be demonstrated are from the rarely seen advanced archival repertoire highlighting the physicality and strength that true Pilates requires.

    "People's perception of Pilates is often that of gentle stretching," says Rachael Lieck Bryce, co-owner of Classic Pilates. "And, while a gentler session might be needed on some days, Mr. Pilates' intention was strength training with flexibility built in. We want to highlight the true physicality it takes to do the advanced system and how the artistry of the shapes in space make for beautiful art." 

    Entry to the reception is a suggested $20 donation, which includes small bites from Shensei. The reception is open to the public. Dress code is Uptown Chic.

    Proceeds from the door will benefit the Fine Arts Program at the Irma Rangel Young Women's Leadership School, Dallas' only public all-girls' school and the first such school in Texas. The school's fine arts program will also receive a portion of the proceeds of the "The Seven Project" art sales.

    Classic Pilates is located at 3303 Lee Parkway, Suite 105 in Dallas' Uptown neighborhood. To register for classes, or for more information on Classic Pilates, visit classicpilatesstudio.com or call (214) 520-0386.
