The experienced staff at Inspirations Dance & Fitness Center lead a variety of dance and dance-based fitness classes that are inspired by their own artistic careers. The studio is run by Melissa Brown, who received her first professional dance gig at the age of 14. She has trained extensively in ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, hip-hop, and street dance. After working with recording artists and at a fitness facility, Melissa became a certified Zumba instructor and now leads group classes at Inspirations. She uses her diverse background and passion for dancing to inspire her clients to get in shape and learn to love working out.
When she was a child, Asa Cansler struggled with her weight. This experience pushed the owner of H.O.P.E. Fit Club to transform her body and eventually become a nutritionist and fitness trainer. But she's not just any fitness trainer—Cansler is certified by Billy Blanks, the eight-time World Champion and founder of Tae Bo Fitness as well as the American Council of Exercise. This certification allows her to lead others through the pulse-pounding, body-morphing Tae Bo routine. A combination of boxing, dance, and martial arts, the workout helps students shed unwanted pounds and tone limbs and torsos until they qualify as body doubles for Greek statues. And, to ensure other kids don't have to deal with the same struggles that she did, Cansler also welcomes kids ages 5-17 to workout for free with a paying adult.
