“It’s very exciting to be here,” said founding owner Renee Manzolillo. “Our members are excited so far, and we’re happy to be putting in a new system to help them check in for classes, along with a few new classes.”
The two-studio space at 11 Newell St. sits on a quiet, tree-lined street, and Manzolillo plans to host as many as 25 different classes in the new location. The space features bamboo sprung wood floors – ideal for dancers. The new system she spoke of is a barcode-scanning check-in system similar to that used by fitness gyms such as Planet Fitness.
Breakin Boundaries was recently selected as the No. 1 fitness spot in Brooklyn via Yelp, and beyond the traditional Zumba, fitness and dance classes, Manzolillo also hosts movement therapy classes and provides services to families touched by autism spectrum disorder with her specialized qualifications as a Certified Movement Analyst and an Applied Behavior Analyst.
Manzolillo hopes to host a grand opening sometime in September or October when the space is fully functional. But for now, it’s business as usual and classes are in session.
