Summer Calenberg, 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.
You don't have to be a dancer, we are not a gym, and we've got 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 drippin' in sweat and droppin' your stress...
We make the workout fun and unforgettable. All you have to do is show up.
So, break away from your mundane fitness routine and I'll see you on the dance floor!
Now, I'm pleased to introduce you to the people that help make our classes come to life each and every day...
