WHAT IS DANCE FITNESS?
Dance fitness is just what it sounds like – we are dancing yourselves fit! In these classes we dance to different choreographed songs; pop, hip hop, salsa, chacha, bellydance, bollywood, flamenco to name a few. We keep the same songs throughout our 5-6 week set. In the beginning of each set I introduce new dances & styles. Difficulty levels vary from easy to medium level. Depending on the class you take, we also include some full body conditioning (lower body / core / arm workouts) – all while dancing to amazing music.

LOW IMPACT: If you are new to dance fitness and looking to spend little bit more time to learn dance moves and find your groove, this class is for you. This class offers an easy, fun & effective way to get a lower impact workout while dancing (less jumping). We will dance to various dance styles from hip hop, salsa, samba, chacha, flamenco, belly dance, bollywood and more.

HIGH INTENSITY: For faster paced, high intensity class, come get a kick ass workout, and join our cardio class. Strong core, strong body and lots of cardio. You will never get bored in this class! You can modify this class to your own fitness level by jumping less.

ALL LEVELS: Our Wednesday day time class is a combination of high intensity & lower impact dances. We also focus on full body conditioning in each class using various dance techniques like barre (core, lower body, arms). All dancing & working out is done to amazing tunes, so you won’t even remember you are working out. For this class sign up DIRECTLY with Soile. This class is at the Squamish Dance Center. We offer 10 weeks at $150 (Jan 10 – March 13, 2024).

Everyone is welcome; all sexes, sizes, level of fitness and any level of experience. You don’t need any dance experience to join any of the classes, but coordination is beneficial in the higher intensity class which is faster paced. You can switch classes at any point if one is too fast/slow for you (and space allows).

Signing up for the full set is encouraged, we always start the set at slower pace and work on our dances throughout the set.
DROP in are available at $20/class – subject to availability.
