What is Old School Skinny?

Old School Skinny is a mix of MC Hammer’s energy, Richard Simmons’ excitement, and the movie House Party all rolled into one. You’ll get a potent non-stop workout by dancing like you did back in the day. No karate kicks, crazy weights or ropes to lift. The movements are designed for dancers of all levels to be in the same place and share a genuine freedom we rarely get to experience on a daily basis.

Why did you start in the class?

I’ve always wanted to create an outlet for people to dance and not feel the pressures of being perfect. My girlfriend and her mom were trying to find new ways of working out together so I decided to make one of my own. While I was shooting Oxygen’s hit show, Dance Your A** Off, I found a way to not only work out the recreational dancer but also challenge those who are more rhythmically inclined. Hip Hop groove was so essential and paired perfectly with the music of the 80’s and 90’s but somewhere along the lines, we lost the funky good time that came with it. Old School Skinny brings that energy back every week with all the throwback jams and today’s radio favorites.

Do you have to be a dancer to take the class?

The class definitely requires some rhythm and comfort in physical movement but you do not have to be a dancer. Its all ‘watch and repeat’ movement so as long as you’re working to keep the pace and having fun, the moves will come.

Anything you’d like to highlight for our readers?

One of my favorite parts about the class is that everyone gets involved. I’ve had people from 7 to 70 years. We move around, dance with each other, battle the routine against each other, lights and lasers are spinning around, and it just feels good to let go. Be ready to leave all insecurities at the door and come to OSS to find the unwavering determination to surpass your personal best every time you take class.
