Without an enjoyable workout, exercise quickly becomes nothing more than a Sisyphean routine of lifting boulders, running up hills, and running away from sudden boulder avalanches.

During classes praised by Cincy Chic, students liquidate calories with hip-hop- and jazz-inspired routines, rocking out to a playlist of 10–12 songs per class. Thumping beats course through the swift session as students master choreography from previous classes while learning to perform latin twirls, jive steps, and advanced jazz hands.
Cardio Dance Party
Though Kim Boardman was a flourishing musician who played in prestigious national orchestras, behind her tooting clarinet thumped the heart of a dancer. Kim spent 12 years of her childhood avidly studying dance at local studios and the respected Interlochen Arts Academy, but eventually put away her pointe shoes to pursue a career as a clarinetist. Unable to shake her passion for movement, however, Kim began taking dance classes as an adult, and earned certifications as a group fitness instructor and personal trainer. Though she continued to teach a variety of fitness classes, she found the most happiness in teaching dance.
Today, she draws from her professional understanding of music and movement to teach classes through Cardio Dance Party, which has received praise from Cincy Chic. Here, she is joined by a staff of seasoned instructors and fellow dance aficionados, leading students of all abilities through high-intensity dance moves as popular music sets bodies in motion. Much like a rollercoaster operated by your childhood babysitter, her dance classes are designed to be fun rather than frustrating, dull, and repetitive.
