Summer G., founder

Hey there, thanks for stopping by! My name is Summer and I'm not a "dancer", I hate the gym, and I can't touch my toes to save my life. 

Sound familiar? 

You don't have to be a dancer, we are not a gym, and we have yoga to help you touch those toes. Point is, if you don't enjoy a typical "workout" or you can't seem to make it to the gym after work, then we're your spot. Our Happy Hour classes will have you actually looking forward to your exercise routine!

We make the workout fun and unforgettable, in a good way. All you have to do is show up.
So, break away from your mundane fitness routine, cancel that gym membership you pay for but never use, and come party with us!

I'll see you on the dance floor!
