  About Calliope
Calliope is a uniqueboutique style studio on Long island offering excellence in training with some of the finest instructors in the
 fitness-wellness field and in the arts. 
It is situated opposite the Roslyn Pier just a stroll from the landmark Gristmill visited by George Washington.  While competitors are based in shopping malls shared with  
 supermarkets and department stores the Calliope studio is very much appreciated by our discerning clients who value the intimacy, beauty, discreet setting and the off-street passage way entrance that maximizes  their privacy.  Our ambiance is preferred by the cognoscenti but Calliope is a welcoming dance/fitness/yoga community that our clients consider one of the
best kept secrets on Long Island.  
Fitness and the Arts have long shared a mutual respect and an interesting relationship dating back to the early Olympians both in the pursuit of excellence and in attaining a high level of  performance.  We very much recognize the infinite ideal of mind-body excellence and continually strive for that within our classes and programs;  in this pursuit Calliope is considered
 'an original'  among wellness studios.  
Calliope also takes the concept of personal, individual attention very seriously establishing nurturing and lasting relationships with students, teachers and friends.  Our members often continue with us for many years and have the pleasure of  seeing
wonderful results. 
Calliope also encourages personal development in the arts both with the novice participant and the developing artist.
Classes are offered at every level from beginner to advanced, and Calliope caters to all ages from teens to boomers and seniors.



 This program includes recuperative exercise and  yoga classes addressing specific body
