Burn calories as you bust a move to hot hip-hop songs!
If dancing at a nightclub is your idea of fun, this is the perfect workout for you! We’ve got classes almost every night of the week, from straight-up hip-hop to trademarked programs like Fierce FUNk and House Party Fit.
While you may learn progressive choreography in these classes, the focus is more on keeping the heart rate up than perfecting technique. And, like most of our programs, no dance experience is required. Swag is optional, too.

House Party Fitness
For those of you who just can’t get enough hip-hop, check out House Party Fitness©.
You know the type of party where the music is pumpin’, the bass is pounding, and you don’t want the party to end? Well, that’s what this class feels like.
Created by ACE certified personal trainer Brooke Blair, House Party Fitness© is a cardio hip-hop fitness program set to the hottest urban music from hip-hop (old and new school), house, top-40, R&B, electronic, and reggaeton. In addition to cardio conditioning, House Party Fitness© strengthens major muscle groups by incorporating resistance training of the arms, lower body and core. Whether using your own body weight, bands, or balls, HPF will give you a TOTAL body workout.
Anyone can do this class. The movements are simple and natural, combining street-style funk with contemporary hip-hop for an accessible, inspiring, fun and complete workout.
Once you’ve mastered one step, the instructor will add another. You may even hear some “vocalography” in the mix — call and response, beat box shout outs, or other percussive verbal cues associated with certain moves to make them easier to remember. The music never stops and by the end of class, you’ll be dancing through a full routine.
