It also builds confidence for those wanting to try PUMP! or HIIT but are still on the fence. Anyone of any age or fitness level can and will succeed in small group training.

This class will also incorporate dynamic and isolated stretching that will help relax your mind, body, and spirit.

West Coast Swing Class w/Carol – March 14, 2015   
6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
$10 per person in advance / $12 at the door (Register Now)

We are doing it again!  Everyone had such a great time at the West Coast Swing class that you have requested more West Coast Swing.  Carol and Joe will be back at The Studio Fitness on Saturday, March 14 to conduct another class.  Carol and Joe will start with the basics at 6:30 pm for new students.  This will also be a great refresher for those who attended the February class.  Then Carol and Joe will teach a few new moves that you can add to your West Coast Swing.  Finally, there will be plenty of time for practice and dancing from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm.  Plus Carol and Joe will provide individual help during the open dancing. 

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
 
I have never done this type of dance before.  Will I be able to learn this dance in just an hour?
Definitely!  The West Coast Swing has two main movements – walking steps and triple steps (also known as Cha-Cha-Cha).  In the hour lesson you will learn how to put these two moves together. This lesson is specifically for beginner students.  Plus there will be lots of music for practice.
 
Don’t all swing dances include lots of jumping and bouncing?  There is no way my body can handle that!
There are many types of swing dancing.  West Coast Swing is popular and easy for all levels, ages and sizes because there is NO jumping or bouncing in the dance.  Dancers glide back and forth in an imaginary slot.  West Coast Swing is easy on the back, knees, hips, etc.
 
I don’t have a partner – can I still take the lesson?
Yes!  You will be able to learn the footwork, patterns and lead/follow techniques of the dance. Plus during practice time and open dancing there will be others to dance with.
 
What should I wear?  Do I need special shoes?
West Coast Swing is a casual dance so casual dress is perfect for the dance – jeans, exercise pants.  Wear whatever makes you feel good and allows you to move freely.  Ladies, many WCS dancers wear stretching black pants for dancing – what we know as exercise pants or leggings!  The suggestions for shoes are a dance shoe that has the suede sole and is flexible or a shoe with a leather shoe that allows you to glide.  We see many people dancing in loafers and flats - just make sure they have a smooth sole and fit securely. Tennis shoes / exercise shoes will work – just select the pair that has the least amount of tread. 

 

 

Hip Hop/Funk Dance Class w/Lisa
Friday, March 27
6:30 PM- 7:45 PM
$15 in adance / $20 at the door (Register Now)

This class is for anyone who wants to learn and improve on hip hop/funk dance movements and learn some new choreography to the latest hip hop and pop music. It will consist of a traditional dance class- with a warm up and stretch, a breakdown of the counts and moves, and learning and practicing a small dance routine.  (Dress attire should be comfortable workout clothes and gym shoes).

Why Group Exercise?
One of the main reasons for people “quitting the gym” is lack of support, motivation, and enjoyment. Without the knowledge from a personal trainer, it is difficult to know what workouts to do, making it frustrating and easy to give up and go home. Plus, it is hard to motivate yourself to exercise to your fullest potential if you are alone. Here are some fantastic benefits of attending group exercise classes:
