I am not a dancer. Are classes suitable for me?
Yes! The philosophy behind the creation of iDance was (is) to make dance available to everyone. While the classes are beginner-friendly, they are challenging and offer a good, fun way to workout. New choreography is taught in each and every class so everyone is learning the same routine, at the same time. At iDance, we KNOW you can dance. Check us out (we know you'll love it) and dance 'til you drop (...the pounds).
What is the Dancer's Body Bootcamp?
The Dancer's Body Bootcamp is a dance-based fitness class. We start with a warm up and some across the floor combos (where squats and lunges are replaced with grand plies and attitudes) and we keep the heart rate up with intervals of cardio. This is a no-choreography class so the focus is on strengthening, lengthening and toning. It's a great way to dance your derriere off (literally).
