People just love our Ballroom Aerobics Classes! In fact, they can’t get enough of it!

When your schedule revolves around Michael’s classes in Trumbull, Shelton, and Monroe, I think one could say that we love dancing in all these classes. It means great exercise, a variety of dances and also allows us to focus. No Pressure-Just Good Fun!I

I love doing things that make me happy. When I started Latin line dancing with Michael Stavola I never thought I would take four classes a week. It’s something that provides both fun and fitness and that works for me!

Better Dancing Through Better Breathing

Written by admin on August 29, 2012

Follow these tips for better dancing using better breathing:

It seems odd, but many of us do not breathe well. When we do breathe well, we will dance much better.

1.    Put your hands on your ribs. Elbows are out to the side. If you put your hands on your hips and then slide your hands up to your rib cage, this can help you find the right placement.

2.    Think about expanding your ‘back’ NOT the chest but your back area. Feel your back and sides moving in and out…you should feel a deeper breath develop. REMEMBER your chest is not rising up and down.

3.    The lower parts of your lungs are expanding out and in, and your core is pulled in.

4.    You can do this standing, sitting or lying on the floor. I found standing best.
