Let’s face it life can get … a little stressful.  In a world thats more connected and busier than ever, it’s important to create a healthy balance between our work life, social life, and some well deserved me time.

" I can come here and have had a terrible day at work and I'm exhausted but when I come in the door, I just forget everything and focus on dance. It really helps my stress!"


A year after being recommended ballroom dance as a fun way to workout, Karin pushed through the initial fear of the unknown and fell in love with it.

Having started out with only latin dances, Karin now dances 3 styles and competes on a regular basis!

" I think in the beginning I was nervous and maybe a little intimidated. I didn't know anything about ballroom and I didn't know how to follow a lead. But I think it was just a fear of the unknown and then I decided to challenge myself and say you know this is something that looks like a lot of fun and what's the worst thing that can happen? "


" I wish that I had done it sooner!

Waiting the year I sort of kick myself about it now but I also have the philosophy that it's never too late! And I think for anybody out there who thinks " Oh, I can't dance" everybody can dance! "


" It's such a fun experience, it's so good for you personally and I'm so glad that after 25 years, I've found dance again!"
