Cardio Pop Countdown + More Holiday Events

‘Tis the season for holiday soirees, so we’re jumping on board with some awesome dance parties to keep you HOT in this chilly winter weather!

’Twas the “Cardio Pop” Before Christmas…

Sweat it out before your big Christmas Eve dinner…or perhaps Chinese food. We’re moving our lunchtime Cardio Pop to 10 a.m. so you can get your dancing in early and have the rest of the day free.

  • Monday, Dec. 24 at 10 a.m. with Tiel
  • Rittenhouse (1624 South St)
  • $13 drop-in or use a Class Card, FREE for Members.
  • This will be the only class on on Christmas Eve so sign up in advance to ensure your spot!

“Dance-mas” Holiday Burn

Whether you want to burn off those Christmas cookies or just have the day off and need some entertainment, we’ve got you covered. Join Marianna in jingling everything but bells during this cardio jam at our Midtown studio. Expect an hour of high-energy, easy-to-follow routines: a mix of Cardio Pop, Zumba and, of course, a few holiday tunes to round off the season! Beginners welcome.
  • Monday, Dec. 25 — 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
  • Midtown (1301 Locust St., 2nd Floor)
  • $13 drop-in or use a Class Card, FREE for Members.

Chassés & Champagne

It’s a pre-New Year’s Eve Philly Dance Fitness ballet gala! Join us for an extra long, all-levels ballet class at 2 p.m. on December 3o, followed by a champagne toast to chassé in the New Year! We’ll even “perform” a few vignettes for each other. “Gala” ballet togs encouraged, so break out your fanciest leotards and bring on the glitz and glitter!

Pre-NYE Cardio Pop Countdown

Cap off the year with an afternoon dance party featuring a playlist “countdown” of the hottest songs of 2018 led by Timaree, Tiel and Marianna (and perhaps some “cameo” routines from Deb, too!). Dance your heart out to all your favorite pop singles of the year, from “Girls Like You” to “Finesse” and more. We’ll even have a few music-related trivia questions with prizes for the correct answers. No prior dance experience required; singing along highly encouraged!

  • Sunday, Dec. 30 — 2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
  • Midtown (1301 Locust St., 2nd Floor)
  • $15 advance tickets available until a week before (through Dec. 23); $20 after that. *Early-bird discounts cannot be combined with Member discounts; Members will automatically get the best deal, which will be at least 20 percent off. 
  • Register here.

Please also keep an eye on our online schedule toward the end of this month. We WILL be open between X-Mas and New Year’s, however, we will have a few reductions due to the holiday season. We’ll also be paying close attention to pre-registration rosters because we’d like to give our teachers a break if we don’t have a critical mass for class. So if you’d like to dance through the holidays, please make sure to sign up online so we know if we have enough dancers to hold class. If we cancel for any reason, you will be notified immediately via email and credited accordingly so you don’t lose any class passes.
