Established in 2011, The Dance Shack is a safe, non-judgemental place for women to dance, workout, and BELONG.

We empower women to feel good about themselves, and fitness is part of that.

Our instructors not only teach, but also follow up with you as a new member.

We work with you, if you need it, to learn the routines without making feel like you are being singled out.

We all started out not being able to dance, and not knowing the routines. We will have you shaking your booty in no time!

About us

Marlo Brown, Owner - The Dance Shack, Inc.


“I opened The Dance Shack because I wanted more than the standard gym experience.

When I first started dance fitness, I stood in the back of the class. I was overweight and overwhelmed. I felt totally alone. I knew I was not the only one who felt like that as a beginner to fitness.

I wanted to make a difference, so I earned licenses to teach all forms of Zumba and Mixxedfit and in July of 2011, The Dance Shack was open for fun!

I believe that you must feel safe, comfortable, and welcome, in order to get the results that you want.

I created a place that for 1 HOUR of the day, ladies could come and dance and laugh. For that 1 HOUR, I want you to know you are IMPORTANT, you do MATTER, and you are ENOUGH! The fitness part is a bonus!”

“I love this place. I finally found a place that I can get a good workout and don’t feel intimidated by comments from other members. I’m a senior and overweight and get nothing but encouragement from members and staff. Great place for all ages.”

“When I joined the Dance Shack in January 2014 I was out of shape & overweight. At first was a struggle to get through an hour class. However it was so much fun & the instructors were very encouraging. I continued to come to Zumba classes on a regular basis and contacted the Zumba Bug! In September 2014 I took the course to become a Zumba instructor. Two years later & I’m still teaching classes at the Shack! I’ve lost about 25 pounds, toned up, gained a lot of confidence in myself and have met some amazing women along the way! Zumba & the Dance Shack changed my life! Come join us & experience the magic of dancing your way to fitness!”
