Amy Collier is offering Jazzercise dance from 4:30-5:30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting July 6. Learn more about the 5 Cs of dance-based fitness and how they can help you have fun while working out.


Torch fat, sculpt lean muscle and crush calories with this high-intensity workout that mixes dance-based cardio with strength training. Fresh pulse-pounding music and body-blasting moves bring the intensity to transform your body, boost your mood and ignite your energy.

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.

Think you know Jazzercise? Think again.

Jazzercise is a pulse-pounding, beat-pumping fitness program that gets you results…fast. It’s a calorie-torching, hip swiveling, Shakira’d-be-proud dance party with a hot playlist to distract you from the burn.

What will you need to join?

Dance Mixx classes will be offered every Tuesday & Thursday, 4:30 – 5:30pm, in the 3rd floor gym of the Nelson Recreation Center. Each class costs $5. Participants will pay Amy directly at the time of the class.

Funding from The Wellness Committee makes it possible to offer these classes at a reduced rate.

 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!
