EveryBody is a DanceBody.
Founded in 2013, DanceBody’s mission is to provide a fun and effective workout by infusing functional training with the playfulness of dance. Our dancers-turned-instructors move clients’ bodies in new ways through dance-inspired fitness. Clients come to DanceBody, virtually and in person, for a workout that strengthens both body and mind.
We dance in a C.I.R.C.L.E
COMMUNITY: Welcome home. We keep moving together, no matter what.
INCLUSION: Show up as you are, there are no dividing lines on this dance floor
RESPECT: It starts with ourselves, and radiates outward
CONNECTED: Our combined energy unites us through movement, and beyond
LOVE: We lead with it, work with it, and move with it always
EMPATHY: We have the ability to feel outside of ourselves, and proceed with compassion
We believe that your workout should build confidence and bring you joy. The most important measurement is how you feel - that is why we strive to improve your quality of life through movement.

YES, we love newbies! Our classes are designed for you to experience a dance-inspired workout with no prior dance experience. Most of our clients are self-proclaimed “non-dancers,” proving you don’t have to be a dancer to look like one.
On a fitness level, these classes are very similar. Both include 45 minutes of high and low impact dance cardio.
Our Signature class is the one that started it all! It includes our set quarterly dances, so coming in with a little coordination will help; however, we have newbies attend this class every day! Our Full Out class is a step up from Signature. You’ll recognize the Signature movements and music, but the choreography includes more advanced dance-inspired movements. We suggest taking Signature classes before diving into Full Out.
