Kick It Up’s supportive instructors demonstrate a medley of strengthening and fancy footwork during more than 100 dance and fitness classes per week. Inside the 6,000-square-foot studio, guests of all experience levels can shimmy and sweat in the nonjudgmental setting of boutique classes, torching calories in the Latin-dance-infused workouts of Zumba, constructing toner muscles in power yoga, or kicking a real-bicycle habit with the help of spin sessions.
Kids and adults ratchet up their light-tripping skills in the studio’s bevy of dance classes. Hip-hop courses teach more body-popping moves than the opening day of a bee farm staffed by balloon animals, and ballet courses blends Vaganova, Cecchetti, and Royal Academy of Dance approaches for a well-rounded curriculum. Visitors can also set torsos asway to the fluid moves of hula and belly dancing or take a vacation to the Victorian era with ballroom dancing. Kick It Up welcomes students aged 3 and older to classes, which cap attendances at a small size to ensure personal attention and enough space for stationary bike wheelies.

Kick It Up
The sprightly clicking of tap shoes fills the aural real estate at Kick It Up's wood-floored studio, entrancing listeners with the Morse code of unrestrained footloosing. At other times, feet communicate with movement, including the graceful pliés of classical ballet, the sharp footwork of salsa, or the Latin-inspired shimmies of Zumba workouts. Tots take their places on the dance floor for camps, birthday parties, and dance-team meets, during which instructors (including owner, former professional dancer, and Southern California Dance Theatre alumna Susan Janson) help them to unleash their creativity and build a lifelong love of exercise. Adults can also chase their fitness goals during more structured activities including classes in Zumba, barre, BellyJamz and power yoga, which tone muscles as they melt calories, stress, and unfinished games of freeze tag.
