Happy Feet Fitness was created by Joel Plys after hundreds of dance classes taught with energized, happy, "sweaty" students wanting more. After a particularly high energy Charleston session a student said "you should offer a fitness class" & Happy Feet Fitness was born.

The favorite dance hall in Harlem, NY was the Savoy Ballroom with their famous tagline: "The Home of Happy Feet". 
Joel is keeping the history of America's dance alive and getting people fit in the process. 

Happy Feet Fitness is an aerobic fitness class utilizing steps used for Swing Dancing: Jitterbug, Lindy Hop and Charleston Rhythms as well as Vernacular (every day) Jazz Movement/Routines to high energy Swing Era/Big Band tunes! 

No partner is required as the focus is on solo movements that are challenging both physically & mentally.   With Joel's vast experience in these genres he can constantly change up the workouts, the tempos, and the complexity to meet the needs of the attendees.

Dress comfortably and wear shoes that you can move in, bring a towel & water if you'd like.

Join two-time Swing Dance Hall of Fame dancer, Joel Plys and his wife Jackie of RETRO RHYTHM Swing Dance Company.

These social dances are sure to have you get fit, have fun, and make friends. There will be an hour lesson before the dance covering a variety of Swing Era dances each month - All levels are welcome!

Swing Dancing is very social and we plan to rotate partners in class so you can meet and dance with everyone. The lesson is followed by 2 hours of social dancing and mixers to DJ Music.
