- Boogie Dance classes are a great way to stay or get in shape, the bonus being that you end up having so much fun that you don't even notice you're exercising. – Gail Johnson, Georgia Straight
- The emphasis is on amateur or intermediate-level dancers who just want to have fun dancing while getting fit. – Rafael Brusilow, Metro
Frustrated with the often intimidating and unwelcoming atmosphere afforded to nonprofessional dancers in dance classes, Jane Stevens founded iDance. Jane designed her studio to be fitness-oriented and engage people from a variety of backgrounds. Five years later, Jane upholds her original goals of egalitarian dance both by employing a team of friendly and motivating instructors and by offering classes that cater to pupils of all abilities. Hints of Jane’s background as both a skilled dancer and dedicated group-fitness instructor can be found in the studio as instructors lead classes ranging from traditional movement methods such as ballet and jazz to classes that fuse fitness and dance including cardio salsa, yoga dance, and underwater hokey pokey.
