PUNTO Presents : show UP - a Fundraiser for the Arts

Join Uptown Pilates and Punto Space for a very special collaborative event supporting the National Endowment for the Arts!

Last month, we saw the proposed elimination of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), a critical source of support for local dance and arts groups serving the people of the metropolitan area. The budget plan eliminates other cultural agencies, including the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Institute for Museum and Library Service, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and reduces funding to key U.S. Department of Education and U.S. Department of State programs focused on arts education and cultural diplomacy.

Now more than ever, we must come together to protect the arts that inspire us, employ us, enrich us, and propel us forward. We at Uptown Pilates strongly believe that change happens through movement and that movement heals. Our Uptown community, heavily populated by artists, is coming together with the Punto Arts community for an afternoon of health, wellness, and strength. Whether you are an artist or a lover of the arts, everyone is welcome!

EVENT SCHEDULE:
3pm-4pm: Pilates mat class led by Uptown Pilates instructors Nicole Kontolefa and Michelle Yard
4pm-4.30pm: Presentation by Nettles Artists Collective with refreshments, giveaways, and more!
4.30pm-5.15pm: Yoga x Pilates Masterclass with Najla Said

**please bring your own mat**

ALL proceeds from this event will go directly to the National Endowment for the Arts! $10 suggested donation.

If you are unable to attend but would still like to contribute, keep an eye out around the studios for donation buckets or donate online.

We will also be selling raffle tickets at all Uptown Pilates locations leading up to the event and at the door. PRIZES INCLUDE:

- Tickets to Spicy Witch Productions' "Mary Stuart" and "COULD THIS MEETING HAVE BEEN AN EMAIL"

- Outdoor Voices Warm Up Kits - Free crop and leggings from the incredible brand Outdoor Voices!

- One FREE week from the tasty, healthy, mindful Splendid Spoon! 

- FREE Private Session at Uptown Pilates

- FREE Group Class at Uptown Pilates

- Uptown Pilates Swag

AND SO MUCH MORE...

Please be sure to share this event with friends- the more support we can give to the NEA, the better!

Can't wait to move with all of you!

  • Google Calendar ICS

Uptown Pilates has been providing our UPscale environment, highest quality of instruction, and impeccable dedication to the Classical Pilates system to the Upper West Side for 10 years. We know that this would be an impossible feat without the continued loyalty and support of each and every one of our valued clients.  Our mission is to provide a comfortable and serene environment in which people of all ages and experience levels can reap the benefits of the Classical Pilates Method.  Our community believes wholeheartedly in the positive effects of this wonderful method and it is our dream to continue to provide a nurturing environment for this incredible work to endure!  
 
In a society overrun with fitness trend obsessions, we appreciate and acknowledge more than ever the thoughtfulness that all of you put into your health and fitness regimens.  Your shared belief in the work that Mr. Pilates started almost 100 years ago fuels our love of the method and inspires us to keep growing and sharing.
