Ocean Breeze Track & Field Athletic Complex, 625 Father Capodanno Blvd, Staten Island

Miss the 60’s? We do too! Come join us for this unique fitness class that focuses on generational fitness fads during the 60’s. Remember, we encourage decade appropriate attire as well! Although we may not be using the ever-popular belt massager, which magically jiggled away those ponds, we will be re-enacting famous dance crazes of the era. This will include everything from the “Twist”, to the “The Mashed Potato”, and of course, “The Swim”. And don’t worry, we will be sneaking in some fitness routines from the 50’s and 70’s too!
