I am hooked. Seriously one of the best workouts ever; the hour flies by and I'm a sweaty mess within the first five minutes. The instructors are incredible; they truly pump up the room. I'd recommend this class to anyone, whether or not you have any dancing experience. Trust me, it's the most fun you'll ever have working out.
