Joy of Fitness
In the Joy of Fitness, we were inspired by several children who use dance to get in touch with their Chinese heritage. Families With Children From China is a group that encourages the community and their children to learn more about Chinese culture and one way to do that is through dance. To see their performance and to watch past episodes of the show, click here.
Barre Exercise is a fitness craze that’s sweeping the nation. Influenced by ballet and other dance moves, it helps elongate and tone muscles and is a cardio workout all rolled into one. Instructor Amy Light and two of her students stopped by to show us how it’s done. To learn more about Barre Exercise, click here. For classes in the Roanoke Valley, click here.
Our audience had a blast learning how to have “No Shame” when it comes to being the life of the party.
John Williams with the Roanoke Ballet Theater stopped by to show us a few dance moves that ANYONE can try.
On the Joy of Fitness, in the spirit of saving money, we had Cynthia Edmunds and Dr. Michael Maina from Roanoke College Health and Human Performance stop by the set to show us how to get a great work out at home – for free.
Joy got a great workout using gallon jugs filled with water. Cynthia and Michael say that you can also fill them with sand and use them to do bicep and tricep curls.
Ken Kinchen and Julian Kilcullen from American Dance Centers stopped by the studio to teach our audience of brides three dances that would be a great first dance for their special day.
