Dancers are known for their long lean muscles and toned bodies. This class will help you achieve one of the most sought after aspect of a dancer’s body, the “dancer’s dent.” Melissa, Hoddy, Burr and Kat will take you through a 20-minute workout that targets the outer corner of your seat during every exercise. From warm-up, into thigh and finishing with seat, you’ll focus on your gluteus medius the entire time!
You will need a ball.
