Couch to Cardio Dance
What is our Couch to Dance Cardio Program?
It is exactly what in says. We hope to inspire you to get off your couch and dance. This can be as simple as just getting up on your feet from where you are seating right now, moving the coffee table to the side and dancing with us. You could also do this in your kitchen, your spare bedroom, your basement or if you live close by, come down to our studio and have some fun with us.
We teach a fun medium to high energy excersice class that incorporates dance moves from many different styles including Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Cha Cha, Zouk, Hip Hop, Jazz and of course African dancing. In all, we bring you a complete body workout that never gets boring, is challenging both to your mind and body, and fun all around.
Below is our studio studio schedule. The classes will run every week except on long holidays. For our on line Couch to Dance Cardio program, please check in with us soon, it's in the works.

Will it be challenging?
Yes. There is a learning curve but once you know the basics of each dance style, you are good to go
Is it like Zumba?
Yes and No. We do choreograph the dance steps but they are not simple. There is a learning curve, you will not be able to just jump in and get it. You will have to go through the basic dance steps with the help of the videos and then build your dancing skills from there. Our promise, once you know it, you will know it.
What dance experience do I need?
None, just go through the basic dance steps in the various styles and you are good to go. The beauty of it is that you are trying it out from the comfort of your own home, so take your time, you can do it.
Can I copy your choreography?
Yes you can. The art of dancing should be shared with all those around you. So to all the dance cardio choreographers out there, enjoy the lessons. But remember, it is not just learning the dance steps that matters, your personality and how you connect with your students is the most important element to not only being a good instructor, but a great instructor. We all enjoy learning and developing a fun friendly enviroment for your student to florish does wonders, the sweaty smiles after your classes will say it all. Cheers
Here is a sample video with some of my students during the Dancing In The Park Festival in 2009 (in Guelph). We will have more videos coming up soon with some of the basic moves you would need in order to go through some of the lessons that will start soon. Enjoy.
