About the Class

Want to increase your ability to dance to fast songs, feel stronger and lessen your chance of injury on the social dance floor?  In her 45 minute dance fitness classes, Erica will get your heart pumping with some fun solo jazz-inspired cardio and then take you through some low-impact exercises to strengthen your legs and core, followed by some cool-down stretching.

You don't need to be a dancer to take this class and all fitness levels are welcome.

This will be, first & foremost, an exercise class, so wear casual/athletic clothing that you don't mind getting all sweaty! Bear in mind that we will be doing some exercises on the floor and lifting our legs, etc, so short-shorts are not appropriate.

Unlike most of our group dance lessons, these classes are open to drop-ins, meaning you can attend when you can, rather than registering for and committing to a month-long progressive series.

All students should bring:

-- a pair of clean sneakers or sensible dance flats for active movement (to protect our floor, we ask that all students bring a pair of shoes to change into, rather than wearing the shoes you just wore outside)

-- a yoga or exercise mat

-- a towel

-- a water bottle

If this is your first class, please arrive at least 10 minutes before class to sign our waiver, change your shoes, and notify the instructor of any injuries, etc.

If you have a punch-card, please try to arrive at least 5 minutes before class, to punch your card, set up your mat, & change your shoes.
