Groovefit Belly Dance Classes
Owner, instructor, and professional dancer Jannelle Cortes dedicates Groovefit Belly Dance Classes' schedule to empowering dance techniques that also ensure an invigorating workout. Originally from the Dominican Republic, Jannelle began exploring ballet in Washington, D.C., at the age of 4 before studying at professional studios in New York and learning about Egyptian cabaret and folkloric dance while in Egypt. Jannelle's experiences living in the cultural mélange of New York inspired her to embrace such nontraditional styles as belly dance, samba, and mambo. Zumba sessions keep tempos high and pulses racing by synchronizing dance-based exercises with Latin-inspired melodies, and belly-dancing classes teach students the abdominal control they need to unbutton a shirt without using their hands.
