After deciding to bag boring classes at the gym, I ventured over to Brooklyn Arts Exchange on 5th Avenue to try out Pene's Hard Core Dance Workout.
I was a little nervous about going, because I'm out of shape. It was a lot of fun and Pene is a great teacher!
Here's an update about the class from BAX Director, Mayra Warshaw: "I am delighted to announce that HARD CORE WORK OUT taught by Pene McCourty will CONTINUE. There is one more class of the current series (February 2) The class will then continue on Mondays February 9, 23, March 2 and 9 from 7 – 8 p.m. NO CLASS ON MONDAY FEBRUARY 16. The workshop is available for $40 (for 4 classes) or by the class as a drop in at $15."
HERE IS THE CLASS DESCRIPTION:
Imagine a hot sweaty dance party does a major mash-up with a structured dance class. You learn new steps, get to do your own dance and de-stress.This class will get your adrenaline pumping, your soul groovin' and your core working.No push ups or sit ups. Just some bad-ass music so you can get your groove on.No prior dance experience necessary.Just bring your bad self!
