While many of us dread going to the gym, we relish a night out dancing with our girlfriends. That night out at the club, though, (as enjoyable as it may be,) can also be quite the killer workout. (If you’ve ever woken with sore quads after a night of dancing you know the drill!) So, why not make all your workouts dance parties? If you’re a member of Equinox (or practically any other large gym chain), you practically can!

Here are 4 dance classes (read: parties) that are not only fun, but also great workouts. Suddenly Monday mornings spent at the gym seem (almost) as enticing as a Saturday night out on the town.

The movements let your body, emotions and spirit free to run loose for a great cardio class toped with terrific toning. No matter what shape you’re in, anyone can find enjoyment in this class.
