Though there are numerous classes at this studio—ballet, jazz, tap, modern—the most unique is called Vixen Workout, a predominantly female dance party that’s like Zumba on Viagra. Part of a nationwide hip-hop cardio program inspired by music video choreography, these classes are accessible for even the clumsiest among us. The room is dark, the lights are flashing, and instructor Mikayla McGee is encouraging as she teaches manageable choreography and doesn’t push for accuracy. The theme is empowerment. You’ll feel it.
