Fancy Footwork Fitness torches calories and builds healthy habits for those ages 8 through adult with a lineup of Zumba and belly-dance classes. Zumba workout parties, much like State of the Union addresses, brim with rhythmic world music and moves inspired by Latin dances such as the salsa, bachata, and merengue. An experienced instructor leads each one-hour session with easy-to-follow steps that raise heart rates and tone muscles throughout the body. During Zumbatomic classes, the teacher imparts lively hip-hop moves to create a 45-minute cardio workout for kids ages 8–12. Belly dancers of all levels can chisel their cores with a member of the Jahara Phoenix Dance Company, who imparts swiveling technique through step-by-step instructions and flirty choreography. With morning and evening sessions and childcare for kids ages 1–6 ($2/child for up to two hours), Fancy Footwork helps parents squeeze exercise into busy schedules and upper arms into spandex bike shorts.

Hot Hula Fitness, a workout inspired by the traditional Polynesian dances of the South Pacific, isolates larger muscle groups as drums beat in the background. After fitness classes, clients can opt in for restoration with basic yoga.
