The music is bumping, the moves are rhythmic, and up to 1,000 calories are burning away. That's just a bit of what Zumba classes are like at ZASS Fitness. In their new studio replete with a new floor, amped-up air conditioner, and extra ceiling fans, certified instructors lead fun, fitness-oriented dance classes. Inspired by Latin dance moves, Zumba enhances cardio, sheds weight, and tones muscles. The instructors also love Zumba because it increases flexibility and encourages self-expression through movement. To augment the festive vibe, the studio hosts parties for kids that include one hour of fitness dancing and another hour for partying.
At Expressions Dance Center we believe that each dancer is unique and will learn at their own pace. Our creative, experienced faculty is dedicated to building self-esteem and confidence, while encouraging our students to achieve their personal best. We offer classes for students age 2 and up!
DanceFit hosts a wide variety of options for gals of all ages and abilities, from little girls pulling on ballet slippers for the first time to ladies burned out from attending too many repetitive gym workouts. Leading pre-ballet for kids as young as 3, the studio's instructors instill the foundations of coordination, dance vocabulary, and body awareness to set the tone for a series of more advanced classes, including pointe and jazz. Dance-fitness sessions such as the barre-based BalletFit and latin-dance-infused Zumba motivate adults to trim down and tone up, and yoga classes help guests lengthen and strengthen their bodies while relieving stress. The Natick location also offers Hot balletFIT, which is balletFIT conducted in a 90 degree room.
To further alleviate life's worries, the studio offers virtual classes via Skype, helping patrons more conveniently fit a workout into a hectic schedule. These sessions are held throughout the day, and allow patrons to hit their yoga mats in the comforts of their own homes or sculpt rock-hard abs in their office's supply closet.
Influenced by dance trends from Europe to Latin America, the staff at SuperShag Dance Studios splits its time between three Boston-area spaces filled with dancing poles, yoga mats, and custom sound systems. Founder Chris Johnston—who won several amateur Latin dance championships as a kid in Ireland and was named a World Class adjudicator by the National Dance Council of America—carefully amassed his talented troupe of teachers from dance schools around the world and from Fred Astaire’s botched attempts to clone himself. During private and group lessons, they spice up Latin-, ballroom-, and pole-dance numbers with an urban twist heavily influenced by British Dancesport, and ready students for competitions.
Jen and Jay, the brother and sister duo behind JFit 360, have different backgrounds but one unified goal—to help their clients incorporate fitness into their circle of well-being and health. Jay, a US marine sniper and MMA fighter, and Jen, a marathon runner and certified personal trainer, both lead classes that include personal training with specialties in boxing, MMA, kettlebell training, yoga, and running. They also conduct group personal-training sessions that offer the same one-on-one benefits of personal training but in a fun, supportive group atmosphere.
