Fitness platform Bande takes it outside this season at the Southampton Arts Center.
“This is our inaugural season in the Hamptons for Bande and our foray into merging the virtual with the physical world,” shares founder Rebecca Balyasny of the new fitness platform (@webandetogether). “Bande was born out of the pandemic, so while our roots are virtual, our brand is all about connection, which is why seeing all our members out in the Hamptons is special for us.” This summer, Friday and Saturday from June 25 to Aug. 14, bande’s signature classes will be taught outside at the iconic Southampton Arts Center. “Our instructors, Bergen Wheeler and Julie Wiesman, bring such an incredible energy to class,” says Balyasny. “ One can feel the energy through a screen, but in real life, it will be next level. Members and friends will be excited to move together, in person. We’ll also offer a social experience where people can reconnect with their instructors and each other. Many have merely heard each other’s names called in class regularly but haven’t had the chance to meet in person.” June 25-Aug. 14, Southampton Arts Center, 25 Jobs Lane, Southampton
