Dancers of all ages have been sashaying, pirouetting, and leaping through the studio at Dance Plus since 1987. Teachers lead classes for all ages and skill levels, from the 2.5-year-olds learning basic coordination in Creative Dance to the adults honing their skills in hip-hop, ballet, and lyrical classes. For those looking for a more fitness-based routine, the studio also offers Zumba classes, which secretly tone muscles by focusing clients on fun-filled dance routines fueled by Latin music. No matter what class students take, they're sure to get the individual attention they need to master the steps thanks to Dance Plus's commitment to intimate class sizes.
The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
