December 30, 2019

Happy 2020!! If this new decade motivates you to find your “perfect vision” of health, we’ve got all sorts of amazing classes to help you reach your goals. We’re loading up our January schedule with more of your favorite programs, the return of Power Stretch and Barre Fit, plus new additions like Dance Party Boot Camp+ and Cardio Pop Intro.

On top of all this, we’ve put together four exciting workshops: our gigantic “Taste of Philly Dance Fitness” sessions as well as brand new Frisky Friday striptease dance parties featuring Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, JLo, Shakira & more hot divas. Read on for full details plus notes about a few existing classes that are changing times.

Workshops

Taste of Philly Dance Fitness

Even if you’ve already been to many of our classes, there’s nothing quite like these mega dance fitness parties!

  • $35 tickets include more than 2 hours of dance instruction plus a full spread of healthy, flavorful munchies. 
  • Save $5 by purchasing early-bird tickets by Jan. 4! *Members automatically get 20% off, which cannot be combined with other promotions.

Frisky Friday: Striptease Dance Parties
Build confidence and tone your entire body in these mini workshops featuring smokin’ hot dance routines, complimentary wine and refreshments! By the end of the night, you’ll have an arsenal of moves that you can use with or without a lap to dance on.

We’re kicking off the year with a “striptease battle” featuring some of the hottest pop divas who topped the charts in 2019: Billie Eilish, Camila Cabello, Ariana Grande, Lizzo and more. Then we’re turning up the Latin heat with a tribute to Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, in honor of their upcoming Super Bowl half time show. These workshops often sell out so be sure to pre-register!
