SHiNE™ Dance Fitness

SHiNE™ is a dance fitness class rooted in traditional dance such as JAZZ, HIP HOP, and BALLET. We take those foundational moves and create dance routines that are easy enough for beginners yet challenging enough for the more seasoned dancer. The simplicity of the routines allows people of all ages and abilities to do more moving and less thinking. Because we like to keep you moving the average calories burned during a full class is approximately 750! Not bad for a workout that feels more like a dance party!

Instructor: Penny Fox-Knudtson

Recommended age is from 8 up to and including all ages of adults, and no prior experience is needed! Children younger than 8 are welcome as long as they are continuously supervised by a parent or guardian. Offered in partnership with the Saskatoon Juggling Club.
