It's a scientific fact that dance makes people happy. And, we believe happy people form happy communities and happy communities lead to great cities.
That's why our goal is to offer the most unique dance + strength classes we can, so you don't just get great physical results but great mental results, like the release of endorphins that make you feel happy, loved, supported and confident.
We focus on movement and music in all of our classes whether it's Tabata or Turn Table, Bootcamp or Ballet because we want you to let that inner child-performer run wild. I mean really. Why should you let all those years of twirling, cheering or playing in the band go to waste? Make no bones about it, we are not a gym. We are a cardio jam studio or perhaps, a happy place for your soul.
Sandi Cauley Owner It was never my intention to open a fitness studio. (In fact, TURN only had a GoFundMe budget.) The idea was born out of my love for Dance Trance. While working as a journalist in 1998, I stumbled into a Dance Trance fitness class in Birmingham, Alabama. I knew I'd found something special and ended up licensing two DT locations to keep the program with me wherever I moved.
I used it as a way to stay fit, reduce stress and rebound after giving birth to my three boys. Little did I know, it would also help me form life-long friends across the country and become my full-time gig. I opened TURN to give Dance Trance and other programs like it a home. Now, I teach and participate in the unique classes we offer and if it isn't fun - we don't keep it. I hope you like what we've done here and I hope that it brings you the same happiness it still brings me.
