Choosing Classes

What classes do you offer?
Zumba, Hop Hop, Burlesque and more so you never get bored. See all classes

Which class is best for total beginners?
Zumba is a great place to start, but our supportive instructors make every class beginner friendly by encouraging students to work at their own pace and creating an environment where they feel comfortable doing so. Also, the more you come, the easier it gets.

How often should I take class to get fit?
Results depend on many factors including diet, genetics and how hard you work out, but in general, if you take 3-4 classes a week and eat sensibly, you should lose weight and improve tone. Remember exercise has great benefits beyond the physical, including boosting your mood and reducing stress.

Can you help me decide what to take?
Sure! Get personalized advice now


Preparing for Class

How far in advance should I sign up?
Same-day reservations are often available, especially around 5 or 5:30pm, but a week in advance is best.

Do people usually get in off the waitlist?
Yes! Please see waitlist policies above.

What should I wear?
Whatever you're comfortable in! Most people wear t-shirts (with a sports bra) and yoga-style pants.

What shoes do you recommend?
Dance sneakers or light cross trainers.

Arriving for Class

How do I find my class?
We rent, so you won't see M Dance & Fitness signs. The address/floor for each class is listed on the schedule, and the desk staff can tell you which studio. 

Will I need my receipt or confirmation?
Not as long as you preregistered and received a confirmation email.

Is water available?
Yes. All studios have either water for sale or water fountains. 

Any changing area, lockers or showers?
It’s  best to come dressed for class if possible. Otherwise, you may change in the restrooms, but they are small. No showers or lockers. You’ll bring everything with you into class.

Taking Class

How many people will be in the class?
15-20 students, depending on the size of the studio. We make sure everyone has plenty of space.

What are your students like?
Most are beginners. All are friendly, supportive and here to have fun!

What if I feel pain in or after class?
Pain should NEVER be part of getting fit. Sore muscles, yes. Pain, no. If you experience pain during or after class, it could be from improper/old shoes or a form issue. Speak to an instructor or email Misty your concerns.

Do you do private Zumba parties?
Yes! We LOVE hosting birthday parties, bachelorette parties, girls' nights out, you name it! Classes can be customized to your preference based on instructor availability. Get more party info

Do you teach corporate classes?
Yes! Our instructors do a great job making co-workers feel comfortable working out together. Get booking info

Maximizing Your Workout

How do I choose the right workout pace?
Our brains tend to say "stop" when our bodies are ready, willing and able to keep going, so use the talk/sing test to decide if you're working at, below or above the right pace for YOU!

  • If you can't talk, slow down
  • If you can, it's a good pace
  • If you can sing, kick it up a notch
