Remember our Racked SF Hottest Trainer of 2013, Dudley Flores? Of course you do. He's the insanely charismatic guy who instructs crazy-popular Rhythm and Motion dance workout classes in San Francisco, and is also the master trainer for new teachers. Well we have exciting news in the R&M world. Until now, San Francisco and Cincinnati (yep, in Ohio) were the only cities in the country where you could take this addictive class. But this month, Rhythm and Motion is expanding to Santa Cruz at Motion Pacific dance studio.
Rebecca Setziol, a longtime Rhythm and Motion student turned instructor, has been commuting to Dudley's classes from the Santa Cruz area (he's that good). Now, she's taking on her own classes at Motion Pacific on Tuesdays at 9:30am and Sundays at 10:00am. It's the perfect way to kick off a day at the beach and/or roller-coaster riding.
To celebrate, Setziol is leading a group of dancers down Pacific Avenue this afternoon during Santa Cruz's First Friday. The first two classes on September 8 and 10 are free, then for the month of September, classes are just $5, or if you bring a friend you BOTH get to dance for free. Classes are open to everyone, whether you've never danced in your life or get paid to do so on the regular. We promise you'll walk away smiling.
