Dance Central offers classes suitable to Young and Mature adults across a variety of levels and styles. Class levelling and types are as follows:

  • Fitness — These classes offer a unique selection of training styles that focus on toning, cardio, strength and form. All classes incorporate music specific to the workout and focus on the development of adult fitness.

This no-impact class works with resistance bands, weights and varying exercises to activate your gluteus and core muscles.
