GroupFit Studio Takes the Lead, Offers Dance Trance Program


Tallahassee, FL, February 09, 2011 –(– GroupFit Studio is the only facility in Tallahassee to bring Dance Trance, a fitness program that uses music and choreographed dance routines for a full-body workout, to Tallahassee residents. While dancing to a variety of music and routines, Dance Trance students have a blast toning, shaping, building cardiovascular endurance and losing weight.

“I wanted to find a solid workout that was also fun and exciting,” said Sherman Rosier, owner of GroupFit Studio. “That’s when I discovered Dance Trance and fell in love with the unique experience it offered students.”

Dance Trance is made up of an entire network of enthusiastic choreographers and dancers that explore dance and music of various regions, cultures, eras and environments during an hour-long cardio workout. With a high level of importance put on the combination of fun and fitness, GroupFit Studio transforms during Dance Trance classes invigorating workouts with driving music, light effects and high-energy routines. Students of all ages are welcome to participate in Dance Trance and it requires no dancing background.

GroupFit Studio wanted to offer Tallahassee a nationally recognized lifestyle fitness program. Students form a fitness community, sharing cardio and strength training sessions, nutrition, group fitness, social clubs and events.

“You can’t work your way into a healthy lifestyle with one visit to the gym,” Sherman said, “that’s why the Dance Trance Program is so effective. The interactivity created by these classes creates a fitness network among its students. All of the dancers find both encouragement and support through the network of classes, online newsletters, daily online messages, blogs, message boards and social events.”

Created 16 years ago by Beth and Jay Handline, Dance Trance has been nationally recognized for its integrated approach to fitness and personal wellness. With over 27 Dance Trance locations available, Mr. Handline says that his students were “ready for new, innovative material that they could feel and made them think.”

GroupFit Studio offers a variety of Dance Trance programs based on student’s skill level, progress and interest. Dance Trance classes dance to new routines and music, and then break them down for an extra cardio-kick. Other programs include Dance Trance Kids, with adolescent friendly music and routines, and Dance Trance Breakdown, an intermediate class that dances to new routines and then break them down for an extra cardio-kick. New music and choreographed routines are added weekly to keep all students active and entertained.

Dance Trance classes are available at GroupFit Studio three times a week and are open to new and old students of the program. Dance Trance is offered at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Dance Trance for all ages is offered at 11 a.m. on Saturdays. Dance Trance Breakdown is offered at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday evenings.
