The Dancer’s Workout was designed to enable former and current adult dancers to achieve their fitness goals through ballet, jazz, hip hop, and contemporary dance. Each class includes warm-up, stretching, a cardio dance segment which requires prior training in these disciplines, and toning exercises.

This is not a beginner’s dance class, as it requires the dancer to quickly assimilate ballet, jazz, contemporary, and hip hop choreography. For intermediate and advanced dancers, both former and current, The Dancer’s Workout provides an exhilarating physical conditioning class.

The Dancer’s Workout is great for former dancers who want to find their way back home and for active dancers who are interested in maintaining flexibility and cardio stamina.

TDW Students

The Dancer’s Workout Dancers featured here are some of our current adult students who originally took ballet, jazz, modern, and/or hip hop when they were in middle school, high school, and/or college.  Then they stopped dancing when life got more complicated, with jobs, husbands, children, and those darn chocolate chip cookies!  But once a dancer, always a dancer, no matter how long it has been!  There is no denying your “Pearl,” that beautiful (thin) dancer who lives inside you!  Our featured dancers have rediscovered their passion for dance by joining The Dancer’s Workout classes.  We hope you will too!  Join the TDW Movement and rediscover the dancer within you! Reclaim your body!
