Our Studio

SENSAZÃO Dance Fitness

Dance fitness is our most popular class because we provide strong and authentic moves to trendy music. Anyone up for a challenge and ready to be happily exhausted can and will succeed! Regardless of your age, size, dance and/or fitness background we have designed this class based on the following: safety, quality and edge. *Workout attire and tennis shoes are required.


Salsa music represents the ongoing evolution and assimilation of a variety of rhythm styles which have traveled from Cuba and Puerto Rico to New York, Miami, and elsewhere. In a way, Salsa represents latino unity made in USA. It is characterized by Afro-Caribbean rhythms, Cuban big-band dance melodies, and elements of jazz and rock. Social dancing to Salsa involves body weight shifting causing the hips to move and often adding complex turn patternsThe arms are used by the "lead" dancer to communicate or signal movements to the "follower". This class is designed to develop understanding of foundation movements and musicality focusing on basic footwork and partnering (lead and follow roles). Workout attire is not required, sport casual attire and comfortable shoes will be fine.

Abs & Glutes

This class is designed to focus solely on your ab and glute muscles. Many students have asked for more of a focus in these areas so we are excited to offer this specific class. We want to see you become stronger and feel the results of this class. *Workout attire and tennis shoes are required.



Bachata is a form of music and dance that originated in the countryside and rural marginal neighborhoods of the Dominican Republic. The music theme is mostly romantic, social couple dancing to Bachata is today popular all over the Caribbean. Now, Bachata is also faster in accordance to faster music, adding more footwork, turns/figures and rhythmic free style moves and with alternate between close (romantic, and sensual) and open position (more playful adding footwork, turn/figures, rhythmic torso, etc.)  The class is designed to explain the musicality and basic partner movement.  Workout attire is not required, sport casual attire and comfortable shoes will be fine. 

Samba Workshops

Samba, in its many variations, is one of the more challenging genres of dance styles that we teach. It is a basic Brazilian step that requires a perfectly relaxed form. Jazmin’s in-depth experience of Brazilian music, rhythms, and styles makes it a unique and authentic workshop. She will take you through the basic steps, building on the styles and grace. It will challenge your musicality and strength while you learn how to loosen your hips to the lively rhythms. *Bring your heels and skirts or scarfs to feel the difference. Please wear comfortable attire that you can move in. Tennis shoes are acceptable if you do not wish to wear heels.
