General

I'm not a dancer, can I take these classes?

YES! (…we love newbies!) Our classes are designed for you to experience a dance-inspired workout with no prior dance experience.  Most of our clients are self-proclaimed non-dancers, proving you don’t have to be a dancer to look like one.

We suggest starting with a Follow Along, Sculpt, or Express class first if you are new to dance-fitness. Read through our class descriptions for full details, or email scheduling@dancebody.com for guidance.

How can I learn the dances?

The more you come to class, the easier (and better) they become! Much like learning a musical instrument or speaking a foreign language, dancing is an acquired skill – sothere is a bit of a learning curve at first. You will see our set dances in Signature and Full Out classes. We refresh these dances quarterly to keep our brains and bodies engaged. 

A great way to perfect our movement and get the best results from class is by booking a Private or Semi-Private Session specifically to learn the dances step-by-step.

What is the difference between the Signature and Full Out class?

On a fitness level, these classes are very similar. Both include high and low impact dance cardio (40 minutes) followed by sculpting (15 minutes). 

Our Signature class is the one that started it all! It includes our set quarterly dances, so coming in with a little coordination will help; however, we have newbies attend this class every day!

Our Full Out class is a step up from Signature. You’ll recognize the Signature movements and music, but the choreography includes more advanced dance-inspired movements. We suggest taking Signature classes before diving into Full Out.

What is the difference between the Follow Along and Express classes?

Our Follow Along class was created for those who want the benefits of dance cardio, without having to learn a dance routine! With zero brain strain, this class is perfect to break a serious sweat. (40 minutes of cardio, 15 minutes of sculpt)

Our Express class is a sprint! At 45 minutes in length, this is our quick, dance-inspired interval training class – perfect for newbies to DanceBody! You will get a great mix of Follow Along-style dance cardioplus toning.
What type of shoe do you recommend for this workout?

We suggest a supportive, well-fitting sneaker for all classes. Our workout is highly athletic and most classes do include jumping. 

What is the cancellation policy for classes?

You must cancel your class 12 hours before class time to avoid losing your class credit.

I didn't receive a confirmation email for my class sign up. Am I enrolled in class?

Please email scheduling@dancebody.com. You may have disabled our confirmation emails during account set up. We’re more than happy to double check for you!

Can I use my Sculpt + Cardio Combo on two different days?

No, our Sculpt + Cardio Combo can only be used with classes that occur on the same day.

Do class packages expire?

Yes, each of our class packages expires after 30, 60, or 90 days. Please check the receipt you received when purchasing the package for further details.

Can class packages be extended?

Unfortunately we can only extend class packages in the case of a medical emergency. If you are advised by a doctor not to exercise, please email scheduling@dancebody.com with a doctor’s note to freeze your class package.

Is DanceBody available for my birthday or bachelorette party?

Yes! We would love to celebrate with you. Just fill out our Private Parties form, or email scheduling@DanceBody.com for rates and availability.

Online Workouts

I’m not a dancer. Can I do these workouts?

YES! We believe that you don’t have to be a dancer to look like one. We have several class types available on DanceBody at Home, including Follow Along cardio, Sculpt, and Breakdown videos that teach you the dances step-by-step; a great place to start for beginners.

Read through our class descriptions for full details, or email streamteam@dancebody.com for guidance.

What is the difference between On Demand and LIVE?

On Demand workouts are pre-recorded classes and private sessions ranging from 10 – 90 minutes, with new workouts added monthly. Unlimited access to On Demand videos are available through our different types of memberships.

LIVE classes are real-time NYC workouts, streamed to you instantly, and accesible anywhere. Can’t make it to our LIVE stream in time? Pre-purchased LIVE classes will remain available for you to watch 24 hours after the originally scheduled class time. 

I don’t have a lot of time to workout. What are my options?

The DanceBody at Home platform features a huge library of content, with new videos added each month.

By using our unique search engine, you’ll be able to quickly find workouts that are 10 minutes, 30 minutes, 60 minutes, and 90 minutes.

Choose what works for you and your schedule.

Can I sign up for a LIVE class after it airs, within the 24 hour window?

No. You can purchase the class until the end of the scheduled time. For example, if a LIVE class starts at 9:00am, you can still purchase the class up until 9:59am, and then watch the replay until 9:00am the following day

I joined the LIVE class after it started, can I rewind back to the beginning during the class?

No, unfortunately our trainers cannot dance in reverse as it’s happening LIVE 🙂 However, the replay will be available for you to watch for the next 24 hours. 

Help! My LIVE class started but I’m seeing a white or black screen.

How often should I do the workout?

Generally, we recommend trying to hit a 60-minute class, three-to-five times a week.

This could be one sculpt and two cardio focused classes, or two sculpt and three cardio focused classes — any combination you like. The most important aspect of this workout is consistency.

What kind of equipment will I need?

For our Sculpt classes we use a Hex Mat, Dance Bands, “D” weights, and a resistance band.  Here’s what you’ll need for the best DanceBody at Home experience:

Dance Bands

Hex Mat 

“D” Weights (2-3lbs)

Resistance Bands

What kind of footwear should I have for the classes?

We recommended wearing supportive sneakers for both the cardio and sculpt classes.

You will want a shoe that is snug around your foot for all the lateral movement in dance cardio and that also has enough shock absorption for the high impact. If you start to have any aches and pains in your feet, ankles, or knees — it could be that you are ready for a new pair of sneaks!

We recommend rotating between a couple pairs and totally replacing them every 3-6 months, depending on how frequently you are wearing them. Trust us, great shoes are essential to enjoying this workout!

Does my room need to be hot for the workout?

We’re about real sweat, not artificial sweat. This being the case, we do not recommend cranking the heat way up in your room before working out. We do recommend that your room is a comfortable temperature (70-75 degrees).

Real sweat comes from the inside out, not the outside in. When you contract your muscles this will produce sweat. Sweating simply because a room is overly warm, you may as well work out in a steam room! This “artificial” sweat makes you feel like you’re working hard, but intense heat causes your muscles to work less. We want you to know that you are reshaping your body, not simply losing water weight.

If I am pregnant, can I do the DanceBody at Home workouts?

We recommend checking with your doctor before starting any new workout while pregnant. The general rule is that if you have been regularly working out 3 months before becoming pregnant, typically you will be able to continue on with your usual routine.

Above all, advice from your doctor or healthcare professional should be considered to supersede anything on our site. If you have further questions, contact your obstetrician–gynecologist or other healthcare professional.
