We've had a few of you ask about the choreo-based classes in our schedule. If you haven't tried Jazz Funk (formerly Fusion) with our girl Lauren Cannon, now's the time!
Here's Lauren in her own words, sharing some fun facts about herself, how she got here, and what you can expect out of Jazz Funk.
BB: HOW DID YOU GET INTO DANCE / FITNESS?
Lauren: I hated after school programs at the YMCA and babysitters so my mother decided to put me into dance and I fell in love.
BB: LAST SONG YOU LISTENED TO?
Lauren: 1,000 Times by Hamilton Leithauser + Rosta
BB: WHAT KEEPS YOU MOVING?
Lauren: A good beat, beautiful words, and random acts of kindness
BB: FIRST DREAM JOB?
Lauren: My first dream job was to dance with Michael Jackson...okay it was actually to be Michael Jackson.
BB: FIRST AOL SCREEN NAME? EXPLAIN YOURSELF.
Lauren: larlar12345 which also use to be my Instagram. I'm not ashamed! :)
BB: WHAT SHOULD WE EXPECT IN JAZZ FUNK?
Lauren: To leave sweaty and feeling sexy, challenged, and wanting more.
If you haven't had the chance to take a class with Breakin Boundaries' Master Trainer Stephanie Lombardi, now's the time. She's coming back to hit us with a 75 minute ass-kicking Zumba master class that will leave you sore for days. But don't intimidated. Steph has been along for the BB ride since its inception. Here's a little backstory and some fun facts about our bootcamp guru.
BB: How long have you been teaching and how did you get into it?
Steph: I have been teaching dance and fitness for 7 years. My love for dance began when I was 6 years old, when I was enrolled in my first hip hop class. Once I turned 17, I got certified for Zumba fitness and began working for Renee at Breakin Boundaries when she was pregnant with her first child.
BB: Song that makes you get up and dance no matter what you're doing?
Steph: I will get up and dance to ANY Backstreet Boys, Nysnc or Spice Girl song!! My all time absolute favorites.
BB: What keeps you moving?
Steph: Music keeps me moving! I feel such a connection with music - the lyrics, the beat, the base. It all keeps me going in one way or another.
BB: Guilty pleasure?
Steph: CANDY! I am sucker for candy. I love anything sour or that involves chocolate.
BB: If you had to give advice to your 18 year old self, what would it be?
Steph: Friendship is about quality, not quantity. When you're young, you look to have a lot of friends and tend to want to be friends with everyone. However, as you get older, you start to realize that there are only a handful you can trust, and only a handful you really need and want by your side.
BB: What should we expect in your master class?
Steph: Expect energy, laughs, booty shaking, hip swaying, sweaty goodness of a workout!! I'm coming back hardcore, bringing back most of my class favorites that really get us going!! I'm looking forward to it and can't wait to see old faces and meet new ones!!
