After having taught thousands of fitness classes of all kinds over the years, Susan believes that dance fitness is unique in the fitness world.  Not only is it the most fun and the most empowering, but dance has been proven to improve mental capacity, creativity, self expression and problem-solving skills along with the physical benefits of strength, stamina, balance, control, flexibility, rhythm and grace.  It is also, quite simply, the most energizing and feel-good workout ever.
