JB Studios Dance and Fitness
When the instructors at JB Studios Dance and Fitness turn up the music, their welcoming space transforms into a full-on party. Black lights wash students in a cosmic glow as they twist, turn, and sweat to contemporary and Latin beats, taking their cues from the clearly visible instructor on the elevated platform.
This energetic scene is inspired by the studio’s head instructor, Jhon Benavides. Drawing on more than 20 years of Latin dance experience, he stirs Latin-flavored moves from salsa, samba, and merengue into rigorous Zumba fitness classes. Each hour-long Zumba session can burn up to 1,000 calories—twice as much as one hour spent saying “Zumba” over and over again. Jhon’s team of certified dance and fitness teachers also share their expertise during boot camps, kickboxing sessions, belly dance lessons, and power yoga classes.
