Based in NYC, the DanceBody workout fuses together dance cardio and sculpt for functional, full-body conditioning that's both fun and effective. Our dancers-turned-instructors move you in new ways to strengthen your body, mind, and spirit through dance fitness.
I started DanceBody in 2013 because I was searching for a workout that combined challenging cardio with functional strength exercises to enhance the female form. As a professional dancer, my body was lean, but dancing alone wasn't enough to keep my muscles strong. I found that dance, paired with high intensity, functional strength training, is the secret to creating the lean lines of a dancer, athletic strength, improved mental health, & increased vitality. Dance is the fountain of youth, I feel stronger now than when I was dancing professionally! Aside from the physical benefits, dance is a joyful form of movement that unites us all. I'm passionate about sharing that energy with everyone.

POP Pilates® is a total body, equipment-free workout that sculpts a rock-solid core and a lean dancer's body like nothing else can. It's a powerful fusion of music, strength, and choreography that takes classical Pilates to the next level. POP Pilates is a dance on the mat.
This workout is perfect for dancers, in that when we perform routines, typically they last around 2:00-2:30 minutes. A 4 minute maximum-intensity workout is fantastic for achieving that level of conditioning and preparation for those performances!
Professional ballroom dancer and certified personal trainer Leon Turetsky says that all styles of dance make for great cardio workouts since your heart rate gets challenged from executing the different moves.
Pole dancing is a full-body workout. It is resistance training and cardio in one, and flexibility is improved as well. Pole dancers perform acrobatic tricks either suspending their weight or propelling it around a metal pole. The simple act of climbing a pole is an incredible display of strength. It is no surprise, then, that most pole dancers insist they have never looked or felt better.
Pole dancers must have their legs, arms and stomachs exposed to safely grip the pole. There are some grounded spins, poses, and floor work that can be performed while wearing pants, but in order to perform more advanced moves, we must have the proper amount of skin exposure.
