I believe that dance, in all it’s forms, IS the best way to stay active, get fit, stay in shape, RE-shape and have tons of fun.

On a much deeper and more personal level, dance, is also the best way to reconnect with yourself as a woman, irrespective of your age, your shape or size, your cultural history or sexual orientation.
