Queen City DanceOut’s troupe of enthusiastic instructors sets bodies in motion during music-marinated fitness classes scattered across a seven-days-per-week schedule. A 60-minute Beginning Moves session warms up novices with easily repeatable, low-strain cardio, and one-hour Dance Impact classes fuse dancing and kickboxing like the movie Kickboxer 6: Senior Prom. Exercisers can explore the radio dial with a signature DanceOut! class’s mix of hip-hop, Latin dance, and pop, or discover the creative ways Urban Shimmy imbues Western dance styles with a Bollywood flair. Lauded as the consummate dance workout, Zumba places salsa origins amid the zestful rhythms of merengue, samba, reggaeton, pickles, onions, and a sesame-seed bun.
Queen City DanceOut
Angie Acosta, founder of Queen City DanceOut, has a simple motto for her students: "If you're moving, you're doing it right." This encouraging, low-pressure attitude attracts people of all ages to her dance-inspired fitness classes, which meet at 18 public locations. Angie and her instructors aim to make exercise feel like a celebration and a refreshing break rather than a dreaded routine. To this end, their classes incorporate intuitive dance moves and invigorating music. DanceOut, the signature course, blends genres as diverse as swing, hip-hop, and reggae into a workout, relying on repetition and basic choreography to keep everyone grooving. Other highlights of the curriculum include the Latin rhythms of Zumba; the Dance Impact class, which fuses dance and kickboxing; and JamStrong, a mixture of core-conditioning, dance, and fun.
Community is a central aspect of every DanceOut class. As pupils practice their twirls, they can follow both the teacher and the Jam Crew—a team of regulars who help make the steps easy to follow and can assist fellow dancers. In addition to group workouts, instructors host skill workshops such as Booty Bootcamp, where attendees learn rump-shaking techniques and how to turn any chair into a rocking chair. They also put on performances and lead private classes for special events and parties.
