MORE THAN FITNESS
I created a fitness company because I hate working out! Yep, I said it! You see, checking fitness off my to-do list has always been a struggle, so much so that I started to feeling real shame and experiencing low self-esteem. I recognized I wasn’t the problem, I just hadn’t found a workout I enjoyed. Fourteen years ago I experienced dance fitness for the first time. It was a workout that didn’t feel like another box to check – instead it was a creative outlet that made me feel youthful, happy and free. I was being stretched out of my comfort zone and this all felt so much more rewarding than the other ways I’d tried working fitness into my life.
In 2015, SHiNE Dance Fitness was born so we could help others who needed to find joy in their fitness journey. For me joy comes with great music, choreography that makes me feel confident, and being surrounded by genuine, authentic people. This has been the recipe that’s made SHiNE what is today.

SHiNE is a dance fitness workout combining current hit music and choreo to help students feel confident and strong. This high-cardio exercise combines jazz, ballet and hip hop moves with calisthenics in a HIIT format for a full-body workout.
We made our popular SHiNE Dance Fitness format more accessible with SHiNE LIGHT. You get all the same fun and physical benefits of SHiNE without the impact and complexity. This class empowers students at all levels to feel successful.
Strength training has never been so fun! UPLIFT combines iconic hits from decades past and present with choreographed strength routines. You’ll use weights, bands, and focused balance and mat work for a well-rounded workout.

SHINE INSTRUCTOR SUMMIT
SHiNE Instructor Summit is all about education, inspiration, and an amazing experience! SHiNE instructors believe in the value of connection, so it seems natural we would carve out time to learn together, inspire and support one another. Our primary goal is to pour love into our instructors and give you the tools and confidence to enhance your skills as a fitness professional.
SHiNEcation is just one way we practice what we preach when it comes to being about MORE than fitness. We value connection and love creating events with positive environments and loads of stress-free fun built in. (We know how to do FUN really well – like REALLY, REALLY well – so be prepared for an unforgettable experience!) SHiNEcation happens every other year as an opportunity to see old friends and get to know new faces. Our goal is to make a lasting impression on our attendees and leave them feeling seen, fulfilled, inspired and empowered to live their most full lives when they return home.
“UPLIFT is an answer to my prayers! My physical therapist kept telling me to go to the gym and I kept postponing because I don’t have a gym buddy to go with. NOW I DO! I have the whole community to strength train with. I feel like such a lucky girl!”

“It feels so great to go through a class and not have a negative thought about myself as a student. As I transition to my role as an instructor, I feel empowered to teach, and given my illness and physical limitations, there are so many routines I CAN teach. It feels like I truly belong here. I get to fully and completely be free to be me and do what feels right for my abilities. I’m fully in love with SHiNE LIGHT.”

“SHiNE has been LIFE CHANGING and LIFE GIVING for me. What started as a simple goal to move my body everyday as a postpartum mom finding her groove again turned into a love of fitness and self-care. It spread into so many aspects of my life and quite literally made everything in my life SHiNE a little brighter.”

“SHiNE has given me my individual purpose back. I feel a purpose outside of being a mom and wife that I’ve been missing for some time. I can make a difference in someone else’s life through the power of dance. What a great and awe-inspiring thing to be a part of. I’ll never not SHiNE bright again.”
