Dance? Motivation? Music? Fun? All sounds good!
When I arrived, I was--for some reason--surprised to see it was a legitimate dance studio. I'd become so accustomed to gym settings, that the studio environment was encouraging. A real dancer's studio, so we just may pass for real dancers!
We gathered in the studio, were offered samples of VROU enhanced, flavored waters (not my thing, but others seemed to enjoy the sweet refreshment), and then came together to begin.

The songs came one after the next, and Lindi instructed us as we went, going through a combination just once slowly before kicking it up for the next few run-throughs. We had plenty of chances to get it right, and she encouraged us to let loose and just move. It did not feel like moving to work out, it was moving to DANCE, dancing to the music. Still, we worked up a strong sweat--in fact, more of a sweat than I typically work up in dance fitness classes, because this time I felt like it was just a dance party, and Lindi's motivating words made me want to give it 110%.
