TL;DR

The Sculpt Society’s Dance + Sculpt class is a sweaty full body sculpt class that mixes bursts of cardio dance with arm, butt, leg, and core exercises using light weights, ankle weights, and gliders.

Format/Equipment

  • Fitness clothes + sneakers.

  • 50 mins.

  • Follow along w/ the instructor.

  • The first two songs are cardio dance moves. Nothing too crazy, mostly just jumping jacks, hopping around, and grape vines. Def not intense choreography.

  • From there on out, each song is focused on one or two parts of the body. 

  • For instance, a typical class is as follows: (ii) first two songs dance cardio, (ii) arm exercises, (iii) arm exercises while doing dance cardio, (iv) leg/glute work using gliders and hand weights, (v) plank series, (vi) glute work using ankle weights, (vii) core work, and (viii) dance cardio for the last song.

  • Super dynamic movement. Expect to work various parts of your body w/ one exercise. For example, lunging using a glider, while also pressing hand weights overhead.

Hard AF?!

  • Yes! You’ll move your body dynamically for the entire class straight through. No real breaks. 

  • The weights are light, but w/ high reps, your muscles will fatigue, esp the glutes!

  • Reminds me of the sculpt class at The Ness. Both super interesting and challenging sculpt classes. 

  • I expected to be barefoot, but the class is high impact and sneakers are necessary.
