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.


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.

Salsa & Bachata

Salsa music and dancing 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". 

Bachata is a form of music originated in the Dominican Republic. Social "couple" dancing to Bachata is today popular all over the Caribbean. The music theme is mostly romantic, but it is also usual to hear fast Bachata nowadays. Dancing to bachata has a sensual look that also involves intricate footwork, turns/figures and rhythmic free-style moves - alternating between close position (romantic, and sensual) and open position (more playful adding footwork, turns/figures, rhythmic torso, etc.).

These classes are 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.
