What to Expect

Adult dance classes are exploding here at ROOTS Dance. And for good reason! They’re fun and a great workout. Here are a few things you can expect when taking an adult dance class here at the studio.

  • Our classes are perfect for beginners and experienced dancers, and are a great way to get fit while having a great time.
  • Wear casual clothes you feel comfortable moving in, a bottle of water and a towel if you expect to work up a sweat!
  • Classes last one hour — but feel free to take a break any time you need it.
  • These classes are even more fun when you come with a friend.

At the end of your class, let us know what you liked about it, or what you’d like to see differently. Our dance mentors would love to meet you and talk with you.

Adult Hip Hop is amazing! The first thing [she] said was, “Don’t be nervous. Feel good about the fact that you came out and are doing this for you!” It really hit home with me, a mom, who almost ALWAYS puts her daughter first before herself. The moment the music started, I felt amazing! Like a superstar’s back up dancer!

5 Reasons to Try Adult Dance Classes

Think dance classes are just for kids? Think again. Numerous studies support a myriad of reasons to continue dancing as adults. Here are a few:

1. Lose weight.

Dance classes have been found to burn more calories in a 30-minute period than running, swimming or cycling. Amazing, right?

2. Increase energy.

University of Brighton’s Dr. Nick Smeeton, who conducted the study above, added: “Dance not only appears to increase positive and reduce negative emotions, which are typical effects of exercise, but we also found that dancing actually reduced feelings of fatigue too.”

3. Improve balance and posture.

With the amount of time we spend sitting and working at computers, it’s vital we achieve and maintain better balance and alignment. Dance can help tremendously with that.

4. Increase flexibility and reduce stiffness.

Dancing not only helps with balance, flexibility, cardiovascular health and more, it can boost your memory and help prevent dementia. In a study by The New England Journal of Medicine, dancing was the only physical activity associated with a lower risk of dementia.

5. Make new friends.

Adult dance classes at ROOTS are non-competitive. This is a supportive environment that is judgment-free and full of friendly faces ready to get to know you!
