Dance dance dance
By now we all know that taking exercise classes via Zoom or Peloton has become as common as owning a microwave. Home exercise equipment and virtual trainers are everywhere! But what about residents who miss their weekly “dance party”? For some, a night at the club, dancing with friends was cardio workout for some! Or maybe you are one of those people who always Wanted dance lessons, but were still too shy or too scared to move in a large group? Well now you can! These days there are tons of dance teachers online just waiting to teach you how to dance! Place like 305live or Dance catch come with easy to follow tutorials for all skill levels! Some sites even have Live dj to make your time on the dance floor more interactive and fun.
