Things to do in Western New York: June 4

Canalside Fitness Classes: Barre Centric

7 to 8 p.m. at 44 Prime St. Free to attend.

BlueCross BlueShield's free summer fitness classes at Canalside start rolling with Barre Centric's first waterfront workout of the season. The weekly series runs Mondays through Aug. 27.

Barre Centric, based at Main and West Ferry streets, intertwines ballet, yoga and Pilates into one workout intended to strengthen long, lean muscles. - Ben Tsujimoto

Twilight Tour and & Candlelit Yoga

6 to 7:30 p.m. at Darwin Martin House (125 Jewett Parkway). Tickets are $30 and registration may be done here.

It is unlikely that when Frank Lloyd Wright designed the Darwin D. Martin House Complex, he ever envisioned twilight yoga being part of the program there.

But times change, even if great architecture doesn't, and the Buffalo attraction will host a candlelit Vinyasa Yoga class in the Greatbatch Pavilion (not the main house), bracketed by a guided tour of the complex and a tea and cookie social hour. - Colin Dabkowski

Two Ohio poets will visit Allentown for the monthly Monday night poetry series in Nietzsche's. Dianne Borsenik, editor of Elyria, Ohio-based NightBallet Press, and John Burroughs from Crisis Chronicles Press are the guests, while Buffalo's Cringe-Worthy-Poets (CWP Press) trots out Julio Montalvo Valentin and Jennifer Skelton for readings. - Ben Tsujimoto
