“Dance like no one is watching”

I come from a very strong dance background (ballet, jazz, and modern trained for 8 years at Jordan College Academy of Dance and Butler University – Indianapolis). I am passionate about dance and helping others better themselves through fitness. Please, join my party! You will have fun, burn a ton of calories, and even meet some great people!

I bring my passion and energy to class, and I know you will bring it too. If you are a little leery at first, just try it out, you will love it! All you need to join the party is a desire to have a lot of fun – a sweat towel and a reusable water bottle won’t hurt either!

Lastly, bring a friend or spouse! You will have more fun if you have someone to party with. I can’t wait to meet you!

General Tips:

  • Expect to have no idea what you’re doing your first time. Remember, no one is there to judge you. Everybody else is usually too worried about what they’re doing to think about anyone else. Just have fun!
  • These are not mellow or quiet classes, you will be moving your body, so be prepared to exercise and have fun!
  • It will be exactly the same routine to the same song every time so you get a chance to learn the routines at multiple classes if you don’t catch it all the first time.
  • A few songs will be changed now and then to keep it fresh.
  • Do only what’s right and appropriate for you in class.
  • Feel free to modify or drop any component of a move, so that it works for your body.
  • Wear comfortable clothes and shoes, and bring some water and a sweat towel!
