Get Stronger with Dance

Time To Dance Logo

The CBG Institute for Dance and Health, in Highland Park, has added a Fitness Dance class at 9:30 a.m., on Thursdays, to their ballet, modern and tap classes. The one-hour program emphasizes low-impact, high-intensity, cardio dance and fitness routines accompanied by music. They alternate dance with resistance routines to build and maintain muscle and bone density. Teacher Penny Brichta holds certifications in ACE, Silver Sneakers, Jazzercise and Barre Connect. All classes are for people 50 and older and are currently presented live on Zoom. Participants need lightweight dumbbells or water bottles filled with beans, sand or rocks, or even cans from the pantry.
