The Dancer's Workout is a high-energy dance class which includes warm-up, careful stretching, toning, and a thorough cardio workout. Intermediate, advanced, and advanced-beginner dancers alike enjoy Jules' ability to teach exciting pop choreography in a manner that is fun and easy-to learn. The Dancer's Workout includes movement sequences from multiple genres of dance, including ballet, lyrical jazz, hip-hop, and contemporary. Its instructional choreography builds upon itself throughout the hour and offers a powerful, non-stop cardio workout which culminates in a dance to a featured pop song. The class is great for former dancers who want to find their way back home and for active dancers interested in maintaining flexibility and cardio stamina. Jazz sneakers or jazz slippers preferred.
Jules is a classical ballet graduate of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (maiden name Julie Redding) who teaches "The Dancer's Workout" at four different locations around the triangle. She has a knack for teaching intricate pop choreography in a manner which is easy-to-learn while simultaneously providing dancers with a one-hour total body workout. Very friendly atmosphere.
