Jazzercise is a pulse-pounding, beat-pumping fitness program that gets you results…fast. It’s a calorie-torching, hip swiveling dance party with a hot playlist to distract you from the burn. Are you ready to try Jazzercise?
Middlebury’s Jazzercise class is taught by Amy Collier, Associate Provost for Digital Learning at Middlebury, who has taught Jazzercise for 4 years. Jazzercise instructors train every year to master the Jazzercise method, which fuses cardio, resistance training, Pilates, yoga, kickboxing and, of course, the demanding forms of dance. Expect to feel results after 3 classes, and expect to keep going. No two classes are the same, so you get the variety you need to stay motivated and break through plateaus. The average person sticks with Jazzercise for 7 years. Why? Because it works.
What will you need to join?
Jazzercise Dance Mixx and Fusion classes will be offered every Tuesday & Thursday, 4:30 – 5:30pm, in the 3rd floor studio/gym in the Nelson Recreation Center. Each class costs $5 and drop-ins are welcome. Participants pay Amy directly at the time of the class. This class is for faculty and staff at Middlebury.
Funding from The Wellness Committee makes it possible to offer these classes at a reduced rate. Click here to learn more about the Wellness Committee and the programs it sponsors.
You will wear comfortable workout wear and sneakers/tennis shoes. Please bring a mat and weights to class (3-lb., 5-lb., & 8lb. are most commonly used). If you don’t have weights, come anyway, and use your body weight as resistance. Also bring water and a towel because you will sweat!
