Lisa Canning—a dance instructor, personal trainer, and health and wellness coach, and the owner of Lisa Dance Fit—is teaching a Zumba class at Arthur Murray Dance Studio, in White Plains, every Saturday at 9:30 a.m. No dance experience is required.

“Zumba is a great way to get a cardio workout. We dance and sweat it out to sounds from all over the globe,” Canning says. “A well-rounded exercise program incorporates regular cardiovascular workouts. The many benefits to doing cardio on a regular basis include weight loss, improving endurance, a stronger and healthier heart, and more energy. It also naturally uplifts your mood.”

Participants can drop in to Canning’s Zumba class or buy a four-class pass. Canning also offers bootcamp, small-group training sessions and personal training by appointment.

“My goal is to create a welcoming, comfortable and joyful environment for my students to find and embrace their individuality, strength and passion,” she says.

After receiving a bachelor’s degree in dance ethnology from San Francisco State University, Canning began teaching dance in schools, youth programs and private studios, after which she facilitated a dance movement therapy program for children with autism. In 2015 she earned her certification as a personal trainer from the  National Academy of Sports Medicine.

 Cost: $15 per class or $45 for a four-class pass. Location: Arthur Murray Dance Studio, 139 E. Post Rd., White Plains, NY.  For more info, contact Lisa Canning at 415.290.5537 or [email protected], or visit Lisa Dance Fit.
