While dance cardio may sound intimidating, TSS makes it approachable and welcoming. Even the language used in each class is inviting and inclusive. “I’m never saying triggering messaging in fitness because I think it’s so detrimental to women and men—because that seeps in subconsciously,” founder, Megan Roup explains. “My hope is that it really impacts how they’re starting to feel about themselves and their bodies.”
No matter what your dance experience level is, The Sculpt Society (TSS) has something for you. The best part? You don’t need to set aside a ton of time to get a workout in—and you don’t need any equipment, either. Classes range from 10 to 60 minutes, with options to use light weights, a pilates ball, and sliders, or to modify without. Roup and her other instructors are big on modifications, with a ton of beginner-friendly classes available, too. “To me, 10 minutes can energetically shift how we feel physically in our body, but also mentally,” she says.
Each week, TSS releases a schedule with live classes and new on-demand offerings. If dance isn’t your thing, stick with the sculpt classes. And, if you are here for the dancing, go with the dance cardio routines or the full-body classes which offer a mix of dance and sculpt. Roup pulls from her professional dance background, adding new choreography to every class, and keeping things fun and engaging.
What our testers say:
“I was a little (or maybe a lot) intimidated by dance cardio back in the studio fitness era. But, with home workouts came a new confidence—one that led me to try The Sculpt Society. I’m so glad I gave it a chance! I never thought dancing around my living room could be an effective workout, but the TSS workouts are fun, engaging, and bring major physical and mental benefits. I love the music, too.” — Carleigh Ferrante, commerce editor
