best dance workouts in michigan
Dancing isn’t just something that happens at weddings or in clubs on Saturday nights—it’s also a great workout you can do at fitness studios all around the state. Here are some of the best places to give dancing-as-exercise a try—no choreography experience required!
Nafas Fitness in Royal Oak
This studio has almost every kind of dance class you could want to try, like Zumba, belly dancing and even tap. Try a single class out for $12 or get a monthly unlimited membership for $69/month.
Pure Barre with eight locations in Michigan
Enter one of these studios and you’ll walk into a room with ballet bars lining the walls. Don’t be fooled by the gentle, low-impact movements though—you’ll be sore after this ballet-inspired workout. Classes cost $18 for one or $99 for new clients to try it out unlimited for a month.
BollyFit in Ann Arbor
Classes here are a combination of classic and folk Bollywood-inspired dance moves. The founder, Anuja Rajendra, even helped the Michigan ice dancing team of Meryl Davis and Charlie White with an Indian-dance-inspired routine. A six-pack of classes costs $99.
Just Move Fitness and More in Portage
Head here to try your hand at WERQ (a dance workout we talked about here), Zumba, dance cardio, barre classes, a drumming dance class and a workout that mimics cheerleading-style dancing. A single class is $10 and if you get a 10-class card, it goes down to $7/class.
Soul Step in Traverse City
If you want to try something more unique, Soul Step offers dancing workouts like breakdancing, burlesque funk, hip hop and other super fun styles. There’s even a freestyling class if you really move to your own beat. Each class costs $15, or you can get an unlimited monthly pass for $96.
