DanceBody BodyBands: A New Way to Move

Posted by Courtnay Mariani on May 10, 2022 12:26:07 PM


Dance fitness is just like any other sport---the muscles, tendons, and ligaments work together to perform at athletic levels. Except, unlike sports, dance is an opportunity to connect with your body’s full range of motion in a heart-thumping, fun, and interactive way. Our goal isn’t necessarily to “score points” but to #KeepMoving (and keep feeling great!) throughout our fitness journey.

When I started DanceBody in 2013, I didn’t intentionally set out to create a “women-run” business. But that is what DanceBody is, proudly, 100% women-owned and run.

Reflecting on our journey going into 2022, I feel proud, I feel restless, I feel inspired. We’ve survived these last few trying years, as we have the years before, with all of our heart and soul. I often wonder if we made it look too easy.

New Year’s Challenge: For a Better You

Posted by Katia Pryce on Dec 8, 2021 2:56:38 PM


If we’re being honest with ourselves, this particular month, we’re probably not going to get to our workouts as much as we’d like. We’ll also likely have a hard time sticking to our ideal eating plan. And our sleep schedule? Yeah, we can probably forget about that too.

But that sacrifice of self is what the holidays are all about: thinking outside of ourselves and being present with friends and family. Then we jump back in, full energy, on January 1st to reprioritize, and set personal goals for the New Year. There is a certain beauty in putting yourself aside this month, and giving your time freely and openly to others.

Break out the blood berry nail polish and cashmere skull sweater - IT’S OCTOBER. Easily, my favorite month of the year - and not just because it’s my birthday month (Scorpios unite!) but because it’s a true month of transformation. There is a glossy bold black line between September 30th and October 1st: the air feels different - clear and crisp - and the murky expansion the heat brought of months past disappears into a swift spooky vapor.

5 Intentions Founder Katia Pryce is Setting This Fall

Posted by Katia Pryce on Sep 7, 2021 10:06:37 AM


You can always feel the shift of seasons in your bones, like a primal mammalian sense we retained from our ancestors. Letting go of the seemingly endless summer days to roll into shorter daylight hours is always bittersweet - but necessary.

I always seem to experience “end of summer burnout” in those last fleeting weeks of pounding sun in the northeast, but try to capture some of that light to bring into the Fall with me.

Your Summer Survival Guide: A Letter from our CEO + Founder

Posted by Katia Pryce on Jul 6, 2021 7:33:04 AM


Hey DanceBody Babes,

The summer months are finally here, I feel like we spend all year waiting for these days! With the warmer season comes new fitness challenges for us to navigate, such as: vacation time vs. workout time, how to sweat-proof life, and daily balancing of summer indulgences. I think one thing we can all agree on is that the concept of the “summer body” is officially cancelled. It’s not about perfection, it’s about progress!
