The Dancer’s Workout®
These inspirational, adult dance fitness classes use ballet, jazz, and contemporary dance choreography, plus toning exercises, to get you and keep you in tip-top dancer’s shape. Created by UNC School of the Arts classical ballet graduate, Jules Szabo, these classes were designed to provide current dancers a fun way to stay in shape while offering former dancers an emotionally and physically safe path back to dance. Each class starts with a 10-minute review of choreography and careful warm-up and stretching exercises prior to the dance cardio and toning portions of the class. Adult dancers (both current and former) are welcome!
