Monmouth County dance studio offers stress relief in safety during pandemic
A Monmouth County dance fitness studio promises to make its clients sweat while showing off their best dance moves.
Danzhouse Fitness in Shrewsbury offers all types of fun dance workout classes, along with Pilates, yoga and choreography classes. But the real challenge is adapting to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We had to become tech savvy overnight, try to figure it all out like everybody else in the world,” says co-owner Jackie Lukas.
What came next is outdoor classes in the parking lot and taking steps to comply with social distancing and sanitation rules. The owners say that the other rule of their center is to be ready to sweat and smile.
“The classes just fly by, you’re totally just moving,” says Lukas. “You’re engaging all different muscles, and it’s just a lot of fun.”
The owners say that their classes also help with stress relief.
“You leave your problems at home, you’re here with us. You’re here for that 45 minutes of non-stop moving. Don’t think about anything else, just be in the moment,” says co-owner Joanne Nizolek.
Danzhouse Fitness also holds indoor classes with a cap of 10 people per state guidelines.
