Beginning on July 1, classes meet on Sunday from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Balance Point Fitness.
World Dance Workout
After mastering traditional group fitness classes such as cardio kickboxing and Zumba, instructor Sandy Pierani hungered for more rhythm. To fan her passion, she spearheaded her own program, channeling both her years of dance experience and her love of West African music. Her five-part workout engages the entire body, set to the lively beats of a world-dance medley. She produced original music, recording percussive tracks with West African, West Indian, and Latin influences, specifically designed to complement dance moves while discouraging sloth impressions. Today, she leads guests of all backgrounds and builds through her energized maneuvers, fusing strength training, cardio conditioning, and stretching into one-hour bouts of boogying. She modifies the steps according to each student's comfort level, leading them through the dynamic warm-up to the breath-centric cooldown at their preferred pace.
