Great Bridal Expo – Wedding Workouts: Dance Classes

PIC FOR WEDDING WORKOUT DANCE CLASSESGroove to your favorite tunes and achieve your wedding fitness goals through dance classes. The benefits of taking dance classes include intense workouts, improved posture, increased poise and fun with movement. When choosing a fitness program for your upcoming nuptials, select a class that fits your personal style and taste. Read on for a look at the many different forms of dance classes.


Featuring Latin-inspired rhythms, Zumba offers a cardio dance workout that feels like a world party. No prerequisites are required for Zumba except a desire to dance to the beat of high energy music in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Zumba classes generally last for one hour beginning with a warm-up and culminating in a cool down. Wear comfy fitness shoes with proper arch support and workout attire that is breathable and fits comfortably. Plan to work up a sweat and bring a water bottle and small towel. Check your local gyms or dance studios regarding class availability.

Ballroom Dance

Dance like a star as you prepare for your big day and perhaps learn a new step or two. Ballroom dance encompasses a variety of disciplines including tango, foxtrots, waltzes, sambas, polkas, rhumba, cha cha, quickstep, paso doble and East coast swing. Ballroom dance requires good posture, framing and a partner, so grab your fiancé and share your dance journey together.  Expect to wear comfortable clothing that allows freedom of movement and choose shoes similar to your wedding reception dance shoes. Dance classes may be private or in a group and last 30 minutes to 1 hour. Contact your local dance studios regarding class offerings.


Look like a prima ballerina on your wedding day by participating in ballet fitness classes to increase your muscle strength, improve body tone and accentuate your natural gracefulness. Enjoy ballet classes emphasizing fitness through classical ballet movements, mat work and using the barre. Great for former ballet students or those desiring a change in their regular workout routine, ballet offers participants a chance to strengthen bodies in a sociable atmosphere. Classes usually run for one hour and are conducted by ballerinas or dancers: arrive on time in loose comfortable attire such traditional dance leotard and tights or a yoga pant and top: do not forget your ballet slippers. Inquire with local dance schools or ballet studios regarding classes.

Aerobic Dance

Get your heart pumping with aerobics and dance your way to wedding fitness. Aerobic dance embraces many dance forms from hip hop to country line dancing. There are three main types of aerobic dance: low impact, high impact and step aerobics which incorporates the use of a small platform for movements. Wearing proper footwear for aerobics is essential; select a shoe designed specifically for aerobics or a cross-trainer athletic shoe. Classes sessions last for one hour. Choose loose comfortable loose fitness clothing and search for classes at local gyms or fitness centers.
