HOT BalletFIT Blogger Event Success!

Since opening in our new Natick location in December, we have held a number of really fun events!  From our Grand Opening Celebration weekend, to princess birthday parties, to Zumbathons! This past Sunday, we were thrilled to be able to host some of the Boston areas best Healthy Living bloggers!  We wanted to showcase our HOT balletFIT class with Gina so we started off the event with a sweaty, fun, 55 minute dance party in our 92 degree HOT studio!  Everyone who participated in the class were absolutely amazing...naturals!  We had two scheduled water breaks where bloggers were encouraged to tweet, Instagram, and post to Facebook pictures of themselves and the class using #DanceFITWaterBreak!
 Two lucky bloggers won a 5 class package and a coveted DanceFIT sweatshirt. After the class, bloggers were invited to stay for a Healthy Happy Hour!

Rebecca Hildreth was the amazing photographer behind the pictures of the class.  THANK YOU, Becca for these amazing pictures!! We loved having you document our class and we hope you join us for a class soon!

The HOT balletFIT class was led by DanceFIT Studio Owner, Gina Fay!  It included a great mix of cardio, traditional ballet steps, barre work and a great stretch at the end.  Dancers were sweaty and toned by the end of this class as all muscle groups were targeted!  The heat provided dancers to reach their maximum stretching ability at the end of class and they all looked beautiful!

The full HOT balletFIT class included bloggers from in and around Boston, BalletFIT certified instructors, DanceFIT staff, fitness photographers, and our friends from lululemon Natick Collection!

Check out the amazing blogs we love to follow for Healthy Living, things to do around the city, Mama bloggers and more!
