We like keeping our clients and instructors in the know, so we answered some commonly asked questions to help you on your BeMoved journey!
What is BeMoved?
BeMoved is a dance fitness program created to let people find release through dance. We believe that movement expressed through dance and music has a transformative power that enriches a person’s wellbeing above and beyond the well-known physical fitness benefits. The Warm-Up infuses breath and movement through choreographed, artistic sequences that activate core strength and balance while improving flexibility and coordination. The Genre section of class uses continuous, engaging dance combinations to inspire anyone from first-time dancers to professionals. Finally, the Cool Down brings your workout full circle, leaving you balanced in mind, body and soul – feeling rejuvenated.
