“I have fi­nally found a place where I can have the best time ever, feed my dance hunger, and work out all at once,” she says.

At New York’s Broad­way Bod­ies’ Bey­oncé-themed class, the wait­ing list is of­ten 50 deep. In­struc­tor Mitchell Wayne or­ches­trates a mix of the singer’s sig­na­ture moves with in­spiredby chore­og­ra­phy. En­tre­pre­neur and DJ Hannah Bronf­man, a de­vote devo­tee, of­ten posts the fi­nale on Instagram. “The vibevib is su­per fun, but the peo­ple in the class­clas def­i­nitely want to learn the se­crets b be­hind B’s moves,” she says. And no­bo­dynobo will ar­gue about as­pir­ing to get Bey­oncé’sBey chis­elled body. “Danc­ing tar­get­sta the smaller, pro­pri­o­cep­tive bal­ance mus­cles that peo­ple aren’t used to us­ing if they’re do­ing tra­di­tional car­dio­vas­cu­lar ex­er­cise or strength train­ing,” ex­plains Jacque Rat­cliff, an ex­er­cisee phys­i­ol­o­gist.

Along with shap­ing your booty, danced can boost brain­power, per­haps evenev more than a gym work­out. “It tar­gets the hip­pocam­pus, which con­trolscon­tro learn­ing and mem­ory, as well as the fr frontal cor­tex. This gives you the ca­pac­ity to fo­cus­focu and to multi-task, im­prov­ing the struc­ture and molec­u­lar­molecu com­po­si­tion of the brain,” claims Carl Cot­man, a pro­fes­sor of neu­rol­ogy at the Uni­ver­sity of Cal­i­for­nia, Irvine, who adds that dan­ceparty-like classes could be the “magic for­mula” of work­outs. “There isn’t any pill that could even come close to the benefits of pair­ing ex­er­cise with so­cial­is­ing,” he says. The bot­tom line is you’re go­ing to ex­er­cise more if you’re en­joy­ing it, and who doesn’t like a dance party?
