Vibe

  • Awesome branding and space.

  • Great merch.

  • Welcoming instructors who KNOW how to move their bodies.

  • The energy of the class is addictive and contagious.

  • The studio itself is dark with cool lighting. You def feel like you’re in some underground club.

  • The studio, itself, is small and the class is packed. IMO, they could enhance the experience by letting fewer people in the class.  It was hard to do some moves full out w/o hitting someone near you.
