Welcome to The Dancer's Workout®

Our mission is to bring dance back into the lives of adult dancers everywhere

The Dancer’s Workout®

The Dancer’s Workout® (TDW) is a program of one-hour adult dance fitness classes designed for paraprofessional dancers. Not beginners and not professional dancers, we are the ballet, jazz, and contemporary adult dancers who fall in that big, luscious (previously neglected) gap.

These daily fitness classes use our prior training in ballet, jazz, and contemporary dance to initially get us moving again and ultimately get us and keep us in tip-top dancer's shape.

Try a TDW Masterclass

Featured in Dance Magazine and Good Housekeeping, The Dancer's Workout® was designed by classically trained, UNCSA graduate Jules Szabo, to provide former dancers with an emotionally and physically safe path back to dance and to help current adult dancers and dance instructors achieve their daily fitness goals through dance.
