Celtic Cardio is a 60 minute class focusing on cardiovascular endurance, foot speed, agility, and overall functional strength using a bench and risers, hand weights, and resista balls. All movement is based on Irish Dance and Highland Games events with contemporary and classic Celtic music driving the beat. You'll hear things like Castle Step, Celtic Knot, Kick Butt, Scottish Squats, Hammer Throw, Stone Throw, Whiskey Walk, and Dublin Dips. Celtic Cardio reduces stress, burns 100-400 calories per class, increases energy and muscle tone, increases lung capacity and respiratory function, increases stamina, strengthens bones, and improves balance.
As an Irish dancer, both in performance and teaching for over 17 years, Instructor Stacey Brown uses extensive knowledge of all the Irish dance forms to create a fun and physically demanding and enriching exercise experience.
